The Brexit vote, the election of Donald Trump, and the rise of populism across the Western democracies indicate systemic discontent with the status quo in our societies.  Pax Britannica and Pax Americana together shaped the modern, globalized world.  The United Kingdom and the United States are now questioning the character of the order that they built, raising the possibility that we are arriving at a historical inflection point.

By kind invitation of Sir Edward Leigh MP, The Henry Jackson Society is delighted to invite you to an event with Dr Charles Kupchan. Dr Kupchan will examine the sources of this potential watershed moment, discuss its political and geopolitical implications, and examine options for U.K. and U.S. foreign policy moving forward.

Dr. Charles Kupchan is Professor of International Affairs in the School of Foreign Service and Government Department at Georgetown University. He is also Whitney H. Shepardson Senior Fellow at the Council on Foreign Relations. Kupchan was Director for European Affairs on the National Security Council during the first Clinton administration. Before joining the NSC, he worked in the U.S. Department of State on the Policy Planning Staff. Prior to government service, he was an Assistant Professor of Politics at Princeton University. He is the author, most recently, of No One’s World: The West, the Rising Rest, and the Coming Global Turn (2012),
