About the Event

Exclusively for Members of FPRI

Is there an Obama Doctrine in foreign policy?  And can we expect there to be alternative approaches to marshaling American power that will help shape the foreign policy debate in the run-up to the 2016 elections? To answer these questions and more, join host Ron Granieri as he interrogates FPRI Senior Fellow Colin Dueck on the subject of his new book, The Obama Doctrine: American Grand Strategy Today (Oxford University Press, 2015).
