The 2003 New American Strategies for Security and Peace Conference

Patriotic Americans of all political persuasions are increasingly concerned about the recent radical changes in U.S. foreign policy. There is mounting evidence that the present course will weaken rather than strengthen America's own security; reduce rather than increase world stability; and create more hostility towards the United States rather than admiration for our dynamic economy and democratic way of life.

With this in mind, The American Prospect magazine, the Center for American Progress, and The Century Foundation sponsored a conference on U.S. national security. The event, titled, “New American Strategies for Security and Peace,” was held at the Wardman Park Marriott in Washington, D.C. on October 28th and 29th, 2003.

This invitation-only conference was aimed at government officials, foreign policy experts and opinion leaders who are concerned with the direction of U.S. foreign policy and its adverse effects on the safety of Americans at home and abroad. The conference provided a forum for the discussion of alternative policies and approaches, and stimulate debate on these crucial issues.
