Event: How can the next U.S. President revitalize American influence and leadership in the world with a mix hard power, or force, and soft power, or attraction to our society and way of life? What qualities give a leader the ability to successfully combine these types of power in proportions that vary with different situations? One of America’s most influential scholars of international relations, Joseph Nye, Jr. joins the Council to discuss his new book The Powers to Lead and to offer insight into the qualities necessary for the next U.S. President to effectively understand changing environments and to capitalize on trends so that hard and soft power can be successfully combined into smart power and intelligent global leadership. Dr. Nye is a former dean of Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government. He also has served as Assistant Secretary of Defense for International Security Affairs, Chair of the National Intelligence Council, and Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for Security Assistance, Science, and Technology.
