“The Essential Reset” – Keith Harper Discusses Biden’s Vital Affirmation of America’s Alliances and Global Commitments

Keith Harper (’95), Partner at Jenner & Block, was consulted by Just Security for a piece by top former diplomats and experts contributing their analysis of Biden’s first major foreign policy address (“Diplomats, Top Experts’ Reactions to Biden Foreign Policy Speech,” Feb. 5). “[W]e will have to work to build back the trust of allies.

What they need to see now is our embrace of working with the international community, especially through multilateral organizations to address the greatest challenges the world faces – climate change, the continuing pandemic, nuclear arms, growing autocracy.”
