The 14th annual Kingston Conference on International Security (KCIS) will take place on 10-12 June 2019, at the Holiday Inn Kingston Waterfront. This year’s theme, A Changing International Order? Implications for the Security Environment, will examine the causes of the challenges to the legitimacy of the liberal international order, and why it has been so difficult to articulate a compelling narrative to support a continuation of American leadership. It will also examine how the order is changing, and what the implications of those changes will be for the future security environment faced by the United States and its allies in the Americas, in the North Atlantic, and in the Indo-Pacific region.

the liberal international order is also being challenged from within by those who are skeptical about the benefits of that order. In both the United States and Europe there is evidence of concern about the international order. That skepticism is particularly pronounced in the United States. The legitimacy that underpinned the Western liberal approach to global politics has been increasingly under assault. Rising skepticism about the costs, both military and economic, of sustaining that order has been accompanied by the rise of nationalism and protectionism that further calls into question the sustainability of that order.
