“A Libertarian Foreign Policy for the 21st Century”
*This webinar will be hosted LIVE from the Georgetown Hoyas For Liberty! Webinar participants will still be able to ask questions*
Chris Preble will talk about general libertarian ideas about foreign policy, and then apply these to the most prominent foreign policy stories in the news today, including U.S. relations with countries in Asia and Europe, revolution and reform in the Arab world, nuclear weapons proliferation, and the threat posed by violent extremists such as al Qaeda. The talk will draw distinctions between libertarian approaches and that of the two dominant ideologies that guide U.S. foreign policy, neoliberalism and neoconservatism
