2016's Race to Change the World: How the U.S. Presidential Campaign Can Reshape Global Politics and Foreign Policy
On 11 and 12 July, CRASSH will be hosting a major international conference focusing on the 2016 U.S. presidential election and the implications that this will have for future U.S. foreign policy.
The conference will be taking place shortly before the Democratic and Republican Party nominating conventions begin. Sessions will focus on the global challenges facing the next president, the role that a president can personally play in an international context, and the state of the 2016 campaign itself. In addition to this, we will hear the views of representatives from a number of key U.S. allies and trading partners on what their priorities are for working with the next president.
Confirmed speakers include:
- Madeleine Albright (former U.S. Secretary of State)
- Vin Weber (Republican Party strategist and former Congressman)
- Ambassador Peter Ammon (German Ambassador to the UK)
- Sir Richard Dearlove (former head of MI6)
- Bridget Kendall (BBC diplomatic correspondent and the next Master of Peterhouse College)
- Sir Malcolm Rifkind (former Defence and Foreign Secretary)
There will be a keynote address, Campaigns on the World Stage, by Madeleine Albright and Vin Weber on 11 July at 5pm.
