Foreign Affairs Round Table

A Grand Strategy of Resilience: American Power in the Age of Fragility is a 10-page article in the latest Foreign Affairs Magazine and the focus of today's discussion. The author is Ganesh Sitaraman, an American legal scholar. He is a Professor of Law at Vanderbilt University, where he has also been a Chancellor Faculty Fellow and the Director of the Program in Law and Government. He studies constitutional and foreign relations law.

Today's roundtable will take place in an outdoor setting at a local park, with plenty of fresh air and social distancing. (Next month, we'll provide an indoor location.) We will give each participant a free copy of the above article, which the moderator pulled from the September-October 2020 issue of Foreign Affairs Magazine.
