    In an era marked by escalating tensions and shifting power dynamics, the complexities of contemporary international relations seem daunting. To make sense of it all, we are honored to host our annual Spring Forum with Dan Negrea, co-author of "We Win, They Lose: Republican Foreign Policy & the New Cold War". Throughout the evening, audiences will have the opportunity to explore the policy prescriptions found in this book to shape a new conservative consensus on approaching the world. 

    Doors will open for the cocktail hour at 5:00 pm, providing a chance for attendees to connect, discuss, and prepare for the evening's discussion, which will begin promptly at 6:00 pm.

    During this engaging event, Negrea will unravel the threads of "The New Cold War," exploring its origins, implications, and potential trajectories. Drawing on his firsthand experiences and scholarly expertise, he will examine the fusion of Regan-era and contemporary conservative foreign policy perspectives, as well as the challenges and opportunities facing the United States and its allies.

    All are welcome to take part in this critical conversation to further explore and better understand the recommendations and assertations of the authors. This is your opportunity to push the conversation forward, challenge perspectives, and have your questions answered on the best path forward for U.S. Foreign Policy.
