The Limits of American Intervention: Lessons from Afghanistan

McConomy Auditorium, CMU
Sponsored By: 
CMU Center for International Relations and Politics

From South America to Africa to Asia, dystopian states and ineffectual nations create conditions threatening to U.S. and global security. Yet recent history has demonstrated the risks attending American-led military campaigns to eliminate hostile regimes and create suitable replacements through sustained nation-building programs. Drawing upon his three tours of duty in Afghanistan as a military commander and ambassador, Karl Eikenberry will discuss the limits of American hard power in effecting sustainable political-economic change through intervention.
