Details: For over a decade, American political and military officials have fiercely argued over and blamed each other for the situation in Iraq. Author Emma Sky discusses what lessons we can learn from Iraq, how we can assess America’s role in global affairs, and what the U.S. can do to generate consensus on our interests, values, and priorities.

Emma Sky, an Officer of the British Empire, is a senior fellow at Yale University’s Jackson Institute for Global Affairs and the author of The Unraveling: High Hopes and Missed Opportunities in Iraq.
