A Preview of the Biden Administration's Foreign Policy Objectives

photo"The NYC Political Forum"

We'll preview the foreign policy objectives and challenges for the Biden Administration. We'll focus on the key areas of challenges and the Administration's purported priorities in addressing them. They include:

• The announcement for a withdrawal of the U.S forces in Afghanistan by Sept. 11, 2021.

• How the announcement to end the U.S. involvement in the War in Yemen is a mere shift in strategy, rather than a complete withdrawal aimed at a ceasefire.

• The Administration's attempts to renew its focus on our geopolitical rivals, namely the two Super Powers, China and Russia. Are the conventional "carrots and sticks" approach to foreign policy still effective?

• The Administration's attempts to undo or reverse the Trump Administration's actions (i.e., re-joining the Paris Accord and restarting talks with Iran over the JCPOA).

• In what ways, is this Administration's policies a continuation or overlap of the previous Administration(s)?

• The significance of this Administration's declaration and official recognition of the Armenian Genocide.

• The Administration's lack of response (or inaction) in massive humanitarian crisis for the Rohingya population in Myanmar and the Uyghurs in the Xinjiang Province.

• What do his cabinet appointments and selection of his close advisers reveal about his approach to the U.S. foreign policy? How is it different than the Obama Administration's foreign policies?
