Foreign Policy at the Brookings Institution hosts this joint event between the Brookings-Robert Bosch Foundation Trans-Atlantic Initiative and the Bridging the Gap New Voices in National Security Initiative, featuring a keynote conversation between Congressman Andy Kim (D-NJ) and Brookings Robert Bosch Senior Visiting Fellow and Bridging the Gap Senior Adviser James Goldgeier on the role of Congress in rebuilding alliances.

The conversation will be followed by an expert panel, moderated by Brookings Senior Fellow Tanvi Madan, assessing the Biden administration's approach to revitalizing alliances and examining issues of alliance management, burden sharing, reassurance and credibility, and coalitions of like-minded partners, among others.

“After four years of strained diplomatic relations with much of the world, President Biden and his foreign policy team have pledged that 'America is back.' I'm looking forward to examining precisely what such a vision entails alongside a distinguished panel of experts at the Brookings Institution," said Moller.

Questions from the audience will follow both the keynote conversation and the panel.

Moller directs the International Security specialization. Her current research examines the military effectiveness of alliances and coalitions in multinational conflicts. In 2018, she was an Eisenhower Defense Fellow at the NATO Defense College (NDC) in Rome. Moller has also held fellowships with the Modern War Institute at the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, Security Studies Program at MIT, Elliott School of International Affairs at George Washington University, and Walsh School of Foreign Service at Georgetown University.
