With emotions ranging from dread to elation, there is unprecedented interest in — and anxiety about — the US Presidential election on the continent. But what drives these emotions? Are Europeans as divided in their views over Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton as they are on their own domestic issues? What are the implications for transatlantic relations, for Russia, for trade? What about the influence of events in Europe — Brexit, the immigration crisis, the rise of the right — here?
Join us for a stimulating and candid discussion on the US Presidential election with leading experts, journalists and diplomats from across the Atlantic. Thanks to the generosity of Ambassador Josko Paro, the event will be held in the heart of Embassy Row – at the Embassy of Croatia.
Join the Institute for Current World Affairs and the SAIS Center for Transatlantic Relations for a stimulating discussion with leading Europe experts, journalists and diplomats:
