US Elections 2020 and the Future of the World Order – A Panel Discussion with the International Manifesto Group

Dear Colleague,

We’d like to invite you to attend US Elections 2020 and the Future of the World Order: A Panel Discussion with members of the International Manifesto Group. The discussion will take Saturday November 7th, at 2:00PM-4:00PM GMT over Zoom.

US elections 2020 could produce clear results, or, as also seems likely, an uncertain outcome. Either way, they will mark another possibly momentous, milestone in the downward trajectory of the country’s political and geopolitical economy of recent decades.

Developments in the US will reverberate around the world, affecting political trends within countries and the shape of the world order. They are certainly set to further accelerate China’s rising prominence in it. Panellists with expertise on different regions and themes will dwell on the significance of the outcome.

Register here to attend this event!
