US Foreign Policy and the 2024 Elections

Joe Barnes

After three years in office, the contours of the Biden Administration’s approach to foreign affairs have become clear. In important ways, Biden’s foreign policy marks a change from that of his predecessor, Donald Trump. But there are continuities as well. One thing is certain: from the bloody war in Ukraine to the violent Israeli-Palestinian conflict, the Biden Administration has been tested by rapidly changing events. And the Administration’s perceived success or failure in foreign policy will help shape the upcoming 2024 elections.

In this class students will discuss foreign policy issues “ripped from the headlines” as the United States faces new and daunting challenges around the world. Students will learn about some of the key foreign policy challenges confronting the Biden Administration as they occur. Subjects will cover a range of topics such as US grand strategy, the savage war in Ukraine, our deteriorating relationship with China, and the ongoing turmoil in the Middle East. The object is to give students the necessary background to understand the complex, sometimes contradictory, and constantly evolving arena of US foreign policy. There will be a strong emphasis on informality.
