U.S. SECURITY POLICY PRIORITIES WILL STAY THE SAME

Contribution to the series "The World HandCOV'd"

Will COVID-19 change U.S. security policy priorities and will the Corona crisis cause Washington to deviate from its comprehensive security policy approach?

Key takeaways

• COVID-19 will not fundamentally change the focus of U.S. security policy. However, the crisis has increased the pressure for accelerated reforms in some areas. The keyword for these reforms is "enhanced resilience”.

• Regardless of who will reside in the White House for the next term starting in 2021, U.S. security policy will continue to be inextricably linked to the country's economic, trade and energy policy interests.

• Although the broad lines of U.S. security policy will not be changed by COVID-19, specific steps and political initiatives of the upcoming years will of course depend on the outcome of the presidential election in November and future majorities in the Congress.

• U.S. future multilateral security engagement will depend even more than before on whether existing agreements and alliances serve the national interests.
