After over a decade of costly military engagements in overseas wars in Iraq  
and Afghanistan, the United States still maintains an interventionist,  
military-first foreign policy. Weary of this unsustainable status quo,  
growing numbers of Americans are engaging in a wide-ranging debate about the  
values and goals of U.S. foreign policy, the necessary levels of military  
spending, and the appropriate role for the U.S. in the world in the 21st  
century. As a result, there is now a unique window of opportunity for deep  
and critical reflection over the key priorities of U.S. foreign policy going  

In this one-day conference to be held immediately after the midterm election,  
we will both critique current foreign policy approaches that exacerbate  
global insecurity, and attempt to outline a more positive vision of U.S.  
global engagement. This vision is one that meets the actual security needs of  
people around the world, and is consistent with the principles of peace and  
justice for all. We will also explore the actions needed to make the changes  
we seek. The discussion will respond to a draft paper, prepared by a working  
group and to be published approximately October 1. Read a summary of the  
Foreign Policy for All project [1].
