Of Coalitions and Corridors: Minilateral Approaches and the Future of US National Security

August 31, 2023 | 12:00 pm | National Security Program

About the Event

In the uncertainties of the global system of the 2020s, is attempting to construct large multilateral alliances the best way to achieve US national interests? Or should US efforts shift towards creating smaller, flexible coalitions of states that can act on specific sets of issues? Building on their recent article in Orbis, Jada Fraser and Mohammed Soliman explore the rise of the minilateral approach and new approaches to regional security via associations like the AUKUS (Australia-UK-US) arrangement or the India-UAE-Israel relationship.
