Whether or not America itself declines or thrives under President Trump's leadership, the post-war liberal international order underpinned by U.S. military, economic, and ideological primacy and supported by global institutions serving the United States’ power and purpose is no longer stable.

In a new edition of his widely acclaimed book, The End of American World Order, Amitav Acharya argues that while the United States will remain a major force in world affairs, it has lost the ability to shape world order after its own interests and image. Acharya will discuss his take on an emerging world order with Thomas Wright and Carnegie’s Salman Ahmed. Carnegie’s Ashley J. Tellis will moderate. Copies of the book will be available for sale.
