The Center for Strategic Studies understands that in diplomacy, politics, law, and business, the best way to learn how to do something is from someone who does it. Think tanks and policy research institutes play an indispensible role in providing the research on which foreign policy is (or should be) based, and are a top career destination for many of Fletcher’s best. To that end, we are very pleased to welcome Dr. Paul Stares to discuss his important new work, Preventive Engagement: How America Can Avoid War, Stay Strong, and Keep the Peace
In this book, Dr. Stares lays out an argument for a proactive U.S. foreign policy, presenting a strategy that details how the U.S. can look and act ahead, to avoid being drawn into costly and lengthy entanglements that drain our power and weaken our resolve to play a global leadership role.
He will also share insights from his long and distinguished career at the intersection of policy and academia, where he currently serves as Senior Fellow for conflict prevention and director of the Center for Preventive Action at the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR).
