Foreign Policy for All at US Social Forum
June 26, 2015 @ 8:30 am - 10:00 am
MAPA is proud to announce that we will be at the US Social Forum in Philadelphia this year, to present a workshop on Foreign Policy for All! The workshop will be very similar to one we had in May in New York.
Abstract: After over a decade of disastrous war in Iraq and Afghanistan, we are fighting again in the Middle East. But growing numbers of Americans are debating the values and goals of U.S. foreign policy, with its heavy reliance on military intervention. Why has it been so unsuccessful? What is the appropriate role for our nation in today’s world? How does our investment in a gigantic, costly military establishment affect our foreign policy decisions? The workshop seeks to outline a positive vision of U.S. global engagement that addresses the actual security needs of people around the world, consistent with the principles of peace and justice for all. It is based on a working paper written by a Boston based working group and discussed at two Boston area conferences. Read the working paper: http://
