Penn Biden Center for Diplomacy & Global Engagement

The Penn Biden Center for Diplomacy and Global Engagement at the University of Pennsylvania is founded on the principle that a democratic, open, secure, tolerant, and interconnected world benefits all Americans. Based in our nation’s capital, the Penn Biden Center engages more of our fellow citizens in shaping this world, while ensuring the gains of global engagement are widely shared.

U.S. leadership has sustained an open world for more than 70 years, enabling virtually every advantage we enjoy as Americans and helping to ensure our safety, our prosperity, and our way of life. Comprised of common norms, rules, and institutions, the American-led liberal international order has facilitated the free movement of people, goods, ideas, and capital; protected the sovereignty and self-determination of nations; and promoted basic human rights and fundamental freedoms for all peoples.
