The Nixon Seminar

on Conservative Realism and National Security

President Nixon was the ultimate geopolitical strategist, and implemented a visionary foreign policy rooted in realism that prioritized America’s interests, particularly with regard to his historic opening to the People’s Republic of China in 1972, his initiation of detente with the Soviet Union and his efforts to broker peace in the Middle East which have borne fruit with 1978’s Camp David Accords, 1993’s Oslo Accords and 2020’s Abraham Accords.
