A talk by Dominic Tierney, Associate Professor of Political Science
This year, a wave of violence has struck Ukraine, Gaza, Syria, Iraq, and elsewhere. Critics on the Right have assailed Barack Obama for being too passive and cautious. Recently, Hillary Clinton argued that the president’s failure to arm Syrian rebels contributed to the rise of ISIS in Syria and Iraq. Is global order collapsing? What is the Obama Doctrine? How effectively is the president handling these multiple (and interconnected) international crises?
In addition to teaching at Swarthmore, Dominic Tierney is a senior fellow at the Foreign Policy Research Institute and a contributing writer for The Atlantic. He is an expert in international politics with particular interest in U.S. foreign policy, public opinion and war, and broader international security issues.
