    DA Discussions: The US’s Status as Representative and Promoter of Democracy in the Biden Era

    One hundred days into the Biden Presidency, are you wondering, "Is it time to remove the Canadian flags from our travel backpacks?" If so, join us as we mark 100 days of the Biden administration with our discussion of the US’s status as representative and promoter of “capital D” Democracy. How has US standing in the world changed over the past 4 years and how might it look in the future? What has been the effect of the right-wing extremism being exported from the US? 

    Andrew Winner, a professor of strategic studies in the Strategic and Operational Research Department at the Naval War College, will lead our discussion of these questions.
