Naval Statecraft and Power in the 21st Century: Heritage Foundation Panel Discussion

Live Chat

The Heritage Foundation hosts a panel discussion on “Naval Statecraft and Power in the 21st Century” on May 16. Director of Heritage Foundation’s Center for National Defense Tom Spoehr moderates a conversation with 77th Secretary of the Navy Kenneth Braithwaite and Brent Sadler, senior research fellow at The Heritage Foundation and author of “U.S. Naval Power in the 21st Century: A New Strategy for Facing the Chinese and Russian Threat.”

For too long, U.S. statecraft has not delivered needed results, nor has it deterred the worst in our adversaries. A new global framework is needed to contest China’s designs to re-order the world to its interests. Naval statecraft does this, playing to the United States’ strengths and China’s weaknesses. It is resilient enough to handle crises a world away while remaining focused on the principal threat—the Chinese Communist Party.
