The US Role in a Changing Global Order

Madison, NJ (February 6, 2009) — “The US Role in a Changing Global Order” is the topic for Dr. Michael Kraig, Director of Policy Analysis and Dialogue of the Stanley Foundation, when he speaks on Thursday, Feb. 19, 2009, at 10 a.m. and at 2 p.m. at Fairleigh Dickinson University’s College at Florham, 285 Madison Avenue, Madison, NJ.

The event will be held in the Orangérie, The College at Florham Library

In order for the United States to meet today’s pressing global challenges, it will require leadership through broad engagement with a large number of nations, international organizations, and nonstate actors. Going it alone is simply not an option, especially in a highly interconnected world of complex problems and new players on the global scene like Brazil, China, India, Turkey, and others. There are no easy answers, but progress can be made in this diverse, highly dynamic world through effective cooperation.

Please join Director Kraig as he discusses these important considerations for the United States in today’s changing global order.  

Kraig manages the foundation’s work in six major initiative areas: United Nations and Global Institutions; US and Global Security; US and Asian Security; US and Middle East Security; Rising Powers; and Nonproliferation, Arms Control, and Disarmament. These ongoing initiatives are centered on widening the policy debate in the United States and within foreign capitals by discussing multilateral, cooperative policy options that could make both the United States and the world more prosperous and secure.

He holds a Ph.D. in political science from the University at Buffalo, New York, with a concentration in international relations, US foreign policy, and comparative politics.
