The U.S. response to war in Ukraine exposes many of the limitations on President Biden’s exercise of the war power. Constitutional constraints, public opinion in an election year, and international commitments and threats all tie Biden’s hands. Mark. J. Rozell will discuss how Biden navigates this complex environment and how it could have a major impact on the war and his presidential legacy.

Mark J. Rozell is the founding dean of the Schar School of Policy and Government at George Mason University. He joined the Mason faculty in 2004. Prior to that, he was Ordinary Professor and chair of the Department of Politics at The Catholic University of America in Washington, D.C. He holds a PhD in politics from the University of Virginia. Rozell is the author or co-author of 11 books, editor of 21 additional books, and author of numerous academic articles on various topics in American government and politics. His research specializations include the U.S. presidency, separation of powers, and the intersection of religion and politics.
