Domestic conflicts in the U.S., including attacks on democracy, have limited U.S. influence abroad in the past. While an overwhelming majority of Americans believe that it is important for the United States to be respected by other countries, a recent Pew survey showed 68% of Americans believe that the U.S. is less respected internationally than it was in the past. Moreover, 58% of U.S. adults expressed their dissatisfaction with how democracy is working in America going so far as to say that our political system needs a major overhaul. Dr. Suri will discuss those experiences and offer some insights for today. How should Americans adjust to the ways that domestic divisions change U.S. international power? What can we do to increase American influence, especially on behalf of democracy at home and abroad?
