Envisioning 2030: US Strategy for a Post-Western World is a report released today by the Atlantic Council's Strategic Foresight Initiative that urges the Obama Administration to seize a historic opportunity to ensure America's global interests over the long term. It outlines a US leadership strategy for the period ahead to 2030 and offers policy approaches in key subject areas to ensure a positive outcome at this inflection point toward a "post-Western world," given historic shifts in political and economic influence.
Offered as a companion to the US National Intelligence Council (NIC)'s Global Trends 2030 quadrennial assessment released today, the Council's Envisioning 2030: US Strategy for a Post-Western World surveys the emerging economic and geopolitical landscape; it describes the unprecedented policy challenges that landscape presents; and it outlines a US strategy to avoid a zero-sum, conflictual future and move toward a more cooperative and prosperous 2030. Six elements of strategy for President Obama emerge from this report:
- Frame second-term policies from a more strategic and long-term perspective, recognizing the magnitude of the moment and the likelihood that the United States' actions now will have generational consequences.
- Continue to emphasize "nation-building at home" as the first foreign policy priority, without neglecting its global context.
- Recognize that the United States must energetically act to shape dynamic, uncertain global trends, or it will be shaped unfavorably by them.
- Pursue more collaborative forms of leadership through deepening current alliances and interacting more effectively with a diverse set of actors. Most importantly, it must reinforce its strategic base: the transatlantic relationship.
- Deepen cooperation with China as the most crucial single factor that will shape the international system in 2030.
- Creatively address the locus of instability in the 21st century—the greater Middle East from North Africa to Pakistan—a major threat to US strategy and world order.
- "The United States has something rare among history's great powers—a second chance at molding the international system to secure its long-term interests," said Atlantic Council President and CEO Frederick Kempe. "No other nation is likely to have as much impact in influencing the global future. Yet in a more complex and competitive world, the US margin of error is smaller."
