“Everything is up for debate when it comes to the basic purpose of U.S. foreign policy,” writes Jake Sullivan in the current issue of the Atlantic. Sullivan lays out a plan and makes the case for a new “American exceptionalism… as the basis for American leadership in the twenty-first century.”

Sullivan will join The Atlantic’s Jeffrey Goldberg to discuss his argument and how America can return to its historic role as world leader. Carnegie President William J. Burns will introduce the conversation.

This event is cosponsored by The Atlantic.
