Pragmatic Engagement
Stephen D. Krasner & Amy B. Zegart

Good evening, listeners! We have another great episode for you this week, as host Richard Aldous speaks with Stephen D. Krasner about what a smart national security strategy for the next President might look like.

Stephen D. Krasner is the Graham H. Stuart Professor of International Relations and a senior fellow at the Freeman Spogli Institute and the Hoover Institution at Stanford University, and was the Director of Policy Planning at the Department of State from 2005–07. He makes the point that America is exceptionally secure at the present moment, and examines why so many Americans feel insecure. He looks at the threats facing America today, and describes the foreign policy challenges the next President will face. Tune in to learn more about “black swan” threats to America, how failed states affect the U.S., and why we ought to take Donald Trump’s foreign policy views seriously.
