The Role of American Leadership in International Organizations: the UN and NATO During the Trump Presidency
From Jeff Layne
Political Science and Criminal Justice Department
Change in leadership is one of the most important components of democratic countries. In this talk, Dr. Adam Irish explores the recent change in American leadership and its ramifications for the United States’ role in both the UN and NATO. Dr. Irish draws on several strands of scholarship – hegemony, the effect of status quo politics, and the legal obligations arising from US commitments abroad – to consider what has really changed in international politics with the election of a new American president.
