About the Event

U.S. foreign policy is top of mind for many people as the 2020 Presidential Election approaches. From an increasingly confrontational relationship with China, a relationship that has only deteriorated since the rise of COVID-19, to peace and security in the Middle East, particularly between Israel neighboring Arab nations; from our at-home vulnerabilities to cyber-attacks, whether they be our elections or our infrastructure, to the status of our trade relationships and agreements around the world—there is no shortage of topics to cover when discussing our country’s foreign policy.

And both candidates, President Donald Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden, have starkly different ideas for the best path forward for U.S. foreign policy.

Join the World Affairs Council for a timely panel discussion on the state of U.S. foreign policy, and what the future may hold beyond the Presidential Election in November.
