Wisconsin Foundation, Alumni Association: 2020 U.S. election’s influence on foreign policy

MADISON, WI (November 13, 2020) — There was very little discussion of foreign policy issues during the run-up to the 2020 presidential election. Yet, the person who sits in the White House has a profound influence on American foreign policy. In the aftermath of the election, what changes are we likely to see in American foreign policy? Find out from an award-winning UW–Madison faculty member at this timely, virtual event. During this presentation, which will be accompanied by a Q & A session, you’ll examine the ways in which the president influences American foreign policy.
