CIVIC’s US Program Director, Dan Mahanty, will speak at “Decisions: US Global Engagement & the Military” at the International Relations Council in Kansas City, Missouri on Tuesday, June 12th.

About the Event

Each year, groups of all ages and backgrounds around the country, including a number in the Kansas City area, consider critical international topics using the Great Decisions materials provided by the Foreign Policy Association ». The International Relations Council and National World War I Museum and Memorial are proud to present a program that will examine one of the 2018 topics – US Global Engagement and the Military.

The global power balance is rapidly evolving, leaving the United States at a turning point with respect to its level of engagement and the role of its military. Some argue for an “America First” paradigm, with a large military to ensure security, while others call for a more assertive posture overseas. Some advocate for a restoration of American multilateral leadership and a strengthened role for diplomacy. Still others envision a restrained U.S. role, involving a more limited military. How does the military function in today’s international order, and how might it be balanced with diplomatic and foreign assistance capabilities? Our panel of experts will consider the role of the military as the United States navigates the 21st century global community.

A cash bar/small plates reception will begin at 6 PM, with the program beginning at 6:30 PM.
