PAST EVENT: Barack Obama’s foreign policy one year on

Event to mark the first year of Barack Obama’s presidency we will be examining his foreign policy. Obama was elected on a ticket of change but to what extent has the international agenda altered since the 44th President of the United States replaced George Bush in the White House?
His address to the Muslim world at Cairo University in June last year was lauded as a masterpiece of oratory and cultural sensitivity but what in practice has Barack Obama delivered when it comes to Iraq, Afghanistan and Iran as well as the War on Terror declared by his predecessor?
