Great Decisions: The Waning of Pax Americana?

Christopher McKnight Nichols for WorldOregon

Friday, January 26, 2018 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

Lecture by Center Director Christopher McKnight Nichols as part of WorldOregon's Great Decisions series at PSU. 

The Waning of Pax Americana?

During the first months of Donald Trump’s presidency, the U.S. began a historic shift away from Pax Americana, the liberal international order that was established in the wake of World War II. Since 1945, Pax Americana has promised peaceful international relations and an open economy, buttressed by U.S. military power. In championing “America First” isolationism and protectionism, President Trump has shifted the political mood toward selective U.S. engagement, where foreign commitments are limited to areas of vital U.S. interest and economic nationalism is the order of the day. Geopolitical allies and challengers alike are paying close attention. 

Tickets are $5 for WorldOregon members, $10 for nonmembers. The lecture will also be streamed live
