TAC and George Washington University to Host FP Summit Wednesday

Conservative alternatives to neoconservatism.

In an effort to refocus conservative foreign policy goals and move away from neoconservative interventionist doctrine, The American Conservative, in conjunction with George Washington University’s political science department and the Charles Koch Institute, is hosting a half-day summit this Wednesday, beginning at 8 a.m.

Titled Summit on Realism and Restraint: A New Way Forward for American Foreign Policy, the conference will touch on a number of issues that explore its central question: “Is conservative realism a viable alternative to neoconservatism and isolationism?” Topics include diplomacy with Russia and Iran, the role of the U.S. in the Middle East, and the place of religion in foreign policy.

Speakers include GWU assistant professor Samuel Goldman, TAC senior editor Daniel Larison, The Hoover Institution research fellow and Foreign Policy blogger Kori Schake and The Week senior correspondent Damon Linker, among others.

The event, which takes place at George Washington University, is free and open to the public. For full details and to register, here.
