Washington’s New National Security Strategy: Seeking to Reinforce U.S. Hegemony

Wed December 21, 2022 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm EST

The catastrophic Ukraine War is about much more than Ukraine. As the recently released U.S. National Security Strategy tells us, “The post-Cold War era is definitely over, and competition is underway between the major powers to shape what comes next.” The war is a primary front in the global competition for power and privilege. Even as Russia finds itself increasingly on the defensive, the current moment bears a deeply disturbing resemblance to the period before First World War that ushered in the “American Century” and the Soviet revolution: competition between rising and declining imperialist powers, arms races with new technologies, complicated alliance structures, economic competition and cooperation, wild card actors, and territorial disputes.

Joseph GersonJoseph Gerson, president of the Campaign for Peace, Disarament and Common Security, and board member of Massachusetts Peace Action, will analyze President Biden’s National Security Strategy document, released in October, in the context of current developments.
