The Future of the Atlantic Alliance: The Idea of Strategic Restraint

A Talk by William Ruger, Charles Koch Institute

For the last 25 years, the U.S. has based its foreign policy on a sense of primacy and idealism rather than restraint and realism.  Ruger argues that the U.S. has failed to recognize the human and economic cost of international military and political intervention. He traces out the implications of a restraint-based foreign policy for the future of the Atlantic Alliance and NATO.

We’re Turning 100!

To mark our centennial in the fall of 2024, the Maxwell School will hold special events and engagement opportunities to celebrate the many ways—across disciplines and borders—our community ever strives to, as the Oath says, “transmit this city not only not less, but greater, better and more beautiful than it was transmitted to us.”

Throughout the year leading up to the centennial, engagement opportunities will be held for our diverse, highly accomplished community that now boasts more than 38,500 alumni across the globe.
