Keynote Address: Threats and Opportunities to US Global Leadership
Marc Genest, Ph.D. | Forrest Sherman Professor of Public Diplomacy | US Naval War College

Does the United States still have the capability and the will to remain a global superpower? The international system has changed dramatically since the end of the Cold War when the US was the lone great power in the world. Today, we are confronting three revisionist powers – China, Russia, and Iran – these authoritarian regimes are simultaneously seeking to weaken America’s influence and alter the rules governing free trade, democratic governance, and the sanctity of sovereign borders. Now is not the time for the United States to ignore the dangerous challenges facing us and our allies. Otherwise, our children will live in a world dominated by ruthless dictators whose beliefs are hostile to every sacred principle this great nation has stood for over the past two hundred years. I will assess the challenges and offer potential strategies for the United States to confront these new and rising threats.
