Professor of International Affairs, Georgetown University

Council on Foreign Relations

Dr. Kupchan will draw on the history of Germany in the 1930's to discuss the rise of illiberalism today. Is liberal democracy at home and abroad in crisis? Are our governing institutions and system of checks and balances more fragile than we presumed them to be? Coming on the heels of an historic election, we will discuss the lessons of history, current political trends and what may lie ahead! Is America facing total transformation as 2020 draws to a close?

Dr. Kupchan received a B.A. from Harvard University and M.Phil. and D.Phil.degrees from Oxford University. He served in the White House as Special Assistant to the President for National Security Affairs from 2014-2017.
