The idea of “American exceptionalism” — and the worldwide military dominance that often comes with it — has long been seen as an untouchable third rail in U.S. politics. But recent polls from the Eurasia Group Foundation and the Chicago Council show that Americans, especially younger Americans, are increasingly skeptical of the idea that America is exceptional or needs to police the world.
Join the Quincy Institute’s webinar on the public’s declining belief in American exceptionalism and the rise in their preference for a foreign policy based on military restraint. Why do Americans now want to be more like other countries? What does the changing electorate mean for future U.S. foreign policy? Trevor Thrall of the CATO Institute will moderate as Eurasia Group Foundation senior fellow Mark Hannah, Chicago Council senior fellow Dina Smeltz the Quincy Institute’s own Stephen Wertheim discuss these important topics.
The panel will take place on November 18 from 1-2 pm ET.
