The Sovereignty Wars: How "America First" Undermines International Cooperation--and U.S. Interests

Stewart Patrick is the James H. Binger senior fellow in global governance and director of the International Institutions and Global Governance (IIGG) Program at the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR).

At this public forum, Patrick will draw on his recent book The Sovereignty Wars: Reconciling America with the WorldThat book examines an enduring instinct in US history–and a central theme of Trump administration foreign policy: an obsession with defending U.S. national sovereignty from alleged assaults. He argues that this mindset rests on an overly narrow and ultimately self-defeating conception of sovereignty that hinders the nation from pursuing its destiny in a global age.
