Thomas Henriksen discussed the end of the Cold War, and how that changed U.S. Foreign policy. He talked about U.S. foreign policy following the fall of communism, including U.S involvement in Panama, the Persian Gulf, Somalia, Haiti, Bosnia, Kosovo, Afghanistan, and Iraq. He portrayed U.S. policies of intervention, regime change, and even humanitarian assistance as responses to rogue states, civil strife, and militant Islam. Finally, he analyzed the transformation from Washington’s stability-first policies to its democracy promotion agenda in the Middle East, which threatens this crucial region with instability, necessitating a new grand strategy to confront terrorism and religiously motivated conflict. Following his remarks Mr. Henriksen responded to questions from the members of the audience.

Thomas Henriksen is the author of American Power After the Berlin Wall, published by Palgrave Macmillan. close
