Many American political commentators are talking about the 2020 US presidential election as the most consequential election in modern American history. But should the rest of the world be paying attention to US domestic politics? Should the US be regarded as a superpower in decline rather than as the centre of global politics, business and culture?
Join us on Wednesday 4 November for a round table panel event hosted by Dr. Oliver Elliott, our head of research and an academic historian of the United States. The panel will be discussing the question:
Why should the world care about the US presidential election?
During a virtual, moderated panel debate
, chaired by Dr Oliver Elliott, a panel of expert Geneva Business School faculty will debate these provocative questions and put the US presidential election in its global context. Panellists include Ms Nicola Jackman, Mr Ricardo Jovani, Mr Andrew Wong, Ms Julie Angel, and Dr Keltoum Irbah
. Using the Q&A function in Google Meet, we can take and queue questions from students and other participants to discuss during the debate and for a Q&A section at the end of the event.
This is an event for our students and faculty to come together and discuss why the US elections should matter to everyone. The goal of these conversations around the US election would be to focus more on the broader interconnections between US politics and global culture and the implications to global business.
