America's Shifting Foreign Policy

Apr 29, 2013

Over the past few years, the United States has started to withdraw its aid and influence from regions like the Middle East, and that is creating space for other countries to assume more powerful positions.

On Tuesday's Up to Date, we’ll talk with Vali Nasr, author of The Dispensable Nation, about how recent foreign policy decisions led us to this point and what it could mean for American power in these areas in the future.

Vali Nasr is the dean of the Johns Hopkins University Paul H. Nitze School of Advanced International Studies and a contributor at Bloomberg View. He served as senior advisor to U.S. special representative for Afghanistan and Pakistan, Ambassador Richard Holbrooke between 2009 and 2011. Nasr is a senior fellow in foreign policy at the Brookings Institution.
