James Traub, Journalist, The New York Times Magazine

While the United States has been trying to shape democracy around the world for more than a century, what lessons can be learned from the Bush administration’s efforts to bolster democracy abroad? From imposing democracy on Iraq by force, to Georgia and the question of how hard to push the “Freedom Agenda” in the face of renewed tensions with Russia, one truth is evident: the United States must exercise caution in its efforts to spread democracy around the world. Join the Council for a discussion with journalist James Traub on why democracy matters to US foreign policy and what can be learned from the last eight years of democracy promotion.
