In this installment of Conversations on Europe, our panel of experts from both sides of the Atlantic will examine the potential impact of upcoming elections in both the U.S. and Europe and to explore significant transnational trends in electoral politics, including the rise of populism and the polarization of the electorate as well as the increasing importance of issues related to immigration, the economy, and trade. How might the US elections in November impact European politics and the transatlantic relationship? What electoral contests in Europe are likely to have the greatest impact on the U.S.? These questions and others will be explored via multi-point videoconferencing.
