Workshop: 'Foreign Policy Implications of the 2020 US Presidential Election'

This online workshop analyzed the upcoming US Presidential Election, its implications for the future of American foreign policy, and the international challenges and opportunities that will likely arise depending on the winner. To gain a useful perspective on these issues, we bring together a group of distinguished international scholars to discuss the ability of a new or second-term president to radically change US foreign policy, what the foreign policy agendas and experience of the two candidates can tell us about the direction and priorities of the next administration, as well as the likely European reactions to a Trump or Biden victory.

Debate 'How to fix the (global) economy post-COVID-19?'

Tensions in liberal democracies were already high before Covid-19 emerged. Inequality, economic anxiety, populism, political polarisation, protectionism, cultural wars, and geopolitical rivalry were tearing the social fabric apart. The pandemic is likely to strengthen even further these tensions. Indeed, Globalisation is seriously under threat. Martin Sandbu, economics commentator at the Financial Times, has been analysing these trends in depth on a weekly bases over the past years and has come up with a number of proposals to establish a new social contract, which can underpin again the liberal order. His latest book is called The Economics of Belonging. In this public event he discussed some of his ideas with Miguel Otero, senior analyst at Elcano.
