The young under-25 cohort — Generation Z — has only known a United States at war, and the failures of those war policies, particularly in the Middle East and Afghanistan. They grew up during an economic recession at home, and amid a War on Terrorism, only to come of age during a new potential new Cold War with China. It turns out they have a lot to say on foreign policy and national security — but don’t expect them to respond as a monolith or reflect older, status quo thinking on the issues.
To discuss their positions on endless wars, the U.S. military footprint, regional flashpoints, and Gen Z’s future impact on policy, the Quincy Institute and the John Quincy Adams Society are sponsoring a panel featuring Natalie Dowzicky, manager of Libertarianism.org, Sam Fraser, editor at QI and ResponsibleStatecraft.org, and Laila Ujayli, associate editor at Inkstick Media. John Allen Gay, executive director of the JQAS, will moderate.
