America now finds itself in a moment of national crisis unlike any we have faced in decades. What are the unique strengths of American liberal democracy in facing the political, economic, and social challenges ahead? What can we learn from the American past? And why is the renewal of liberal education so essential to the long-term flourishing of the American regime? In this “Tikvah Live” conversation, Dr. Peter Berkowitz will offer his reflections on the virtues and vulnerabilities of liberal societies in times of crisis and the need to re-think how we educate American citizens and statesman.
Dr. Berkowitz has taught in Tikvah’s educational programs, written penetrating essays in Mosaic and the Jewish Review of Books, and was a featured speaker at the Jewish Leadership Conference’s 2018 Conference on Jews and Conservatism. He is a Senior Fellow at the Hoover Institution and currently serves as Director of the Policy Planning Staff in the Office of the Secretary in the State Department.
