Description

William B. Ruger Chair of National Security Economics Papers, No. 4. Richmond M. Lloyd, editor. Proceedings form a forum which provided a collegial forum for a small and select group of foreign policy and regional experts to formulate and recommend new directions for American foreign policy for each of the major regions of the world.

With a new American administration in office, this is an opportune time to
assess American foreign policy and to set future directions:

1. What challenges and opportunities will the United States, and its allies
and friends, face in the future?
2. What changes should be made to all elements of U.S. foreign policy, including the diplomatic, economic, military, and informational elements?
3. What elements should continue?
4. What are the varying perspectives of nations within the region concerning U.S. foreign policy?
5. What changes in U.S. foreign policy would they desire?
6. Overall, what new directions for U.S. foreign policy will better support
the interests and objectives of the United States, its allies, and its
friends?

A total of thirty-three foreign policy and regional experts participated in the workshop. Seventeen panelists presented papers on seven panels: A Global Perspective, Western Hemisphere, Asia and the Pacific, South Asia, The Greater Middle East, Europe and Russia, and Africa.
