Cosponsored by the Wilson Center and Kennan Institute

Although most would agree that US interests are better served in the long run by the spread of democracy abroad, some argue that “hard” security interests must always take precedence, at least in the short term. Others see the consolidation of democracies abroad as a core strategic interest in itself. But even among this latter group, many advocate that we must urgently develop more effective approaches to supporting democracy internationally. These are the issues that will guide the morning’s discussions between several of the book’s authors and participants.
