"Road to Election Night & Beyond" - Virtual Event Series


Regarding the upcoming presidential election, we are happy to host the virtual event series Road to Election Night & Beyond together with the Aspen Institute and other transatlantic institutions and German political foundations.



This series is meant to facilitate in-depth discussion amongst leading researchers, policymakers, think-tanks, and civil society in the run up to this year’s U.S. election.



About Road to Election Night & Beyond:


The 2020 U.S. Presidential Election and the events leading up to November 3 continue to shape public discussion and debate on both sides of the Atlantic. Given that the world currently finds itself in a pandemic of unknown dimensions, the pending health crisis further pushes this consequential election to the center of public attention.


This joint effort by institutions representing the leading transatlantic community aims to foster debate on a healthy and strong Euro-American partnership and to raise awareness for issues that will shape public perception in Germany, Europe, and the U.S. in the months to come. In unprecedented and uncertain times like these, we are committed to sending a strong signal for transatlantic solidarity.


Kicking-off on September 1, virtual discussions will be hosted every 2 to 4 weeks, each focusing on a specific topic, ranging from transatlantic trade to electoral demographics, social media on the campaign trail to geostrategic implications of the election. Join us for a lively exchange amongst the vibrant transatlantic community and let us, together, pave the way for a Transatlantic Conference on January 20, 2021, the very day of the inauguration of the U.S. President.



Click here to see for upcoming events and please note that further dates and events will be announced on a rolling basis.


Videos of the discussions will be made available here after the individual sessions.
