Foreign Policy in a Post-Pandemic World

New National Security Priorities

May 21st, 2020

On May 21st, 2020, Foreign Policy for America launched an event series, The New Normal: Foreign Policy in a Post-Pandemic World, to discuss the effects of the pandemic from a global, big-picture perspective. Our first conversation, New National Security Priorities, explored the ways in which the pandemic could shift thinking among political leaders and within America’s national security bureaucracy. COVID-19 is making us rethink many of the pillars of our post-9/11 national security strategy.

FP4A board member Stephen Grand was joined by author, historian, and national security analyst Max Boot and Center for American Progress VP of National Security and International Policy Kelly Magsamen to discuss the future of U.S national security strategy and how changes could be reflected in the budget.
