On November 3, all eyes will be on the United States as Americans head to the polls to elect a new Congress and the next president. The circumstances of this year’s election are far from ordinary: a nation struck hard by the pandemic, an economic downturn, and deep divisions on key social issues. The outcome of the elections will have a profound impact on the future path of the United States—and of the world as a whole.
We are pleased to invite you to our online event “The Morning After – A Deep Dive into the U.S. Elections Results” in collaboration with our partners the Atlantik-Brücke and the Representation of the State of North-Rhine Westphalia. Prominent U.S. and German voices will offer comprehensive, first-hand analysis.
Please join us for a set of lively discussions. We look forward to your participation. You will find the latest agenda here.
