Dr. Robert Kagan
American author and policy advisor

Under Donald Trump’s presidency, the last superpower standing has become more unreckonable. At the same time, a glance at world politics shows that the polarisation between the key players is becoming more unclear and generally more dangerous. The question arises, then, of what role the USA will play in the years to come, and whether the motto ‘America First’ will hold true.
