Why neoconservatism still matters

In this paper, Justin Vaïsse argues that neoconservatism remains an important school of thought in American foreign policy debates, and predicts that neoconservatives will play a meaningful role in shaping U.S. foreign policy in the future. After offering a definition of this complex movement, and shedding light on its complex history, he describes the reasons for neoconservative resilience after the Iraq war. Because of their institutional, intellectual and political dynamism, the neocons will remain an influential force in American foreign policy for years to come.Justin Vaïsse
