US Foreign Policy and the Trump Administration


02nd May, 2017

Kurt Volker, Executive Director, McCain Institute

Chaired by:

Anthony Dworkin, Senior Policy Fellow, ECFR


President Donald Trump has been in office for more than 100 days, but his foreign policy is still giving rise to more questions than answers. The President has made a policy U-turn in several areas (such as Syria or Russia) but stuck to his pre-election rhetoric in other areas (such as trade). What is his strategy, what are his tactics? Which other policy changes might be in the pipeline? And what does this mean for Europe?

Kurt Volker (@kvolker) is Executive Director at the McCain Institute for International Leadership. He was the former United States Permanent Representative to NATO.

Anthony Dworkin (@AnthonyDworkin) is Senior Policy Fellow at the European Council on Foreign Relations focusing on human rights, democracy, and justice. He has written extensively on the US frameworks for counterterrorism.
