Description

The Makings of a Progressive Foreign Policy

Friday, March 1, 2019 – 9:00am-10:30am

@ CUNY School of Labor and Urban Studies

Featuring: Aziz Rana, Professor of Law, Cornell Law School; and Steve Fraser, Editor-at-Large, New Labor Forum

Progressive activists and political leaders in the U.S. have been slow to elaborate a vision regarding foreign policy. Although anti-interventionism and support for decreases in military spending are widely shared stances on the left, they do not comprise a comprehensive foreign policy platform.

What accounts for the lack of attention toward developing a progressive foreign policy platform? What would such a platform consist of? What would a non-imperial vision of the U.S. in the world look like? What current alliances would such a platform call into question? What are the current possibilities and the substantial obstacles to advancing a contemporary progressive vision for foreign policy? What can we expect from the growing progressive wing of Congressional Democrats?

Join us on Friday, March 1 as Aziz Rana of Cornell Law School presents his take on the potential elements and strategies of a progressive U.S. foreign policy. Steve Fraser of the New Labor Forum will moderate.
