Trump and World Order: Will a New US Foreign Policy Change Global Governance?

Friday January 20th 2017
Blavatnik School of Government, Lecture Theatre 2
The election of Donald Trump as President of the United States raises the prospect of fundamental shifts in American foreign policy and global governance. Trump campaigned against NATO and US military alliances in Asia, against current and planned free trade agreements, against international cooperation on climate change, against recent détente agreements with Cuba and Iran, and a host of other international commitments and policies. While there is still significant uncertainty about what course the new administration will pursue in world affairs, the United States and the world face, potentially, the largest realignment of American foreign policy since the Second World War. What impact will these potential changes have on global governance? On the eve of President Trump’s inauguration, Oxford University experts explore the impact the new administration may have on security, trade, environment, and other critical areas of world order.
