Halper to discuss U.S. foreign policy, Feb. 7
Posted February 2, 2007; 12:57 p.m.
Stefan Halper, a former adviser to four U.S. presidents, will discuss "American Exceptionalism, Institutional Failure and U.S. Foreign Policy" at 4:30 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 7, in 16 Robertson Hall.
Halper served in the White House and Department of State during the Nixon, Ford, Reagan and the first Bush administrations, advising on matters concerning U.S. foreign policy, national security and the United Nations. He is now a senior fellow at Cambridge University's Centre of International Studies, where he directs the Atlantic Studies Programme and lectures on late-20th-century U.S. foreign policy, Anglo-American relations and contemporary international security issues.
Halper's recent work has focused on the nature of political discourse, the rise of extremist views and their prevalence in the national political discussion, the rise of anti-Americanism among European elites and the implications for U.S. policy in the decades ahead. His books include "America Alone: The Neo-conservatives and the Global Order" and "Silence of the Rational Center: Why American Foreign Policy Is Failing."
The lecture is sponsored by the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs.
