CEPA Transition Brief No. 3

The third installment of CEPA’s Transition Briefs highlights one of the most important questions facing the incoming U.S. Administration: How can the United States secure its homeland from threats abroad?

In Transition Brief No. 3: The Dangers of Strategic Solitude, CEPA’s Jakub Grygiel finds that turning inward, away from the international system is neither a source of security nor a sign of greatness. Rather, he argues that the United States will continue to need its allies—perhaps even more so than in the past. The alternative path of strategic solitude puts at risk regional stability and rewards U.S. rivals.
