Following the end of the Cold War, the US became a unipolar power in global affairs, shaping and leading the liberal rules-based order. US global supremacy, however, is now being called into question as the US, China and Russia battle for military, economic and technological supremacy on the world stage.

Following the release of his recent book New Cold Wars, David E. Sanger, White House and National Security Correspondent, The New York Times will outline his thoughts on how America can defend itself and the West in the face of Russian and Chinese aggression.

This event will explore:

  • How is America adapting to a return of great power rivalry?
  • How will this impact America’s ability to lead at the global level?
