The Changing Role of America’s Military: A Debate

  • Live: December 11, 2017 @ 7:00 p.m. Pacific Standard Time
  • University of Nevada, Las Vegas, Greenspun Hall Auditorium

On December 11, University of Nevada, Las Vegas will host a debate on the changing role of America’s military, convened by the Brookings Institution’s Foreign Policy program and the Charles Koch Institute, in partnership with POLITICO.

This event is the second in a series of thematic debates on America’s role in the world, hosted in cities around the United States. The purpose of the series is to foster a vigorous, civil, and constructive national discussion on the future of American foreign policy.

The Las Vegas debate will address what kind of military the United States needs to be to confront current and future threats, how the U.S. military should be postured at home and around the globe, and the scope for greater burden-sharing between the United States and its allies.

POLITICO’s chief international affairs columnist and host of “The Global Politico,” Susan Glasser, will moderate the debate. Mahsa Saeidi, a reporter at KTNV Action News, will moderate a question-and-answer with the audience.

All are welcome to submit questions and join the conversation on Twitter at #AmericaInTheWorld
