The rise of four powerful democracies – Brazil, India, Indonesia and Turkey – presents one of the most significant opportunities for U.S. foreign policy in the early 21st century. Daniel M. Kliman of the German Marshall Fund of the United States (GMF) and Richard Fontaine of the Center for a New American Security (CNAS) urge American leaders to pursue closer partnerships with these four countries, which they term “global swing states.” In Global Swing States: Brazil, India, Indonesia, Turkey and the Future of International Order, published as part of a joint initiative of GMF and CNAS, Kliman and Fontaine offer a new framework for thinking about how U.S. engagement with these pivotal powers can bolster peace, prosperity and freedom.
