Talk to the Experts: What Could the US Elections Mean for Europe? A View From Former US Congressmen on Both Sides

    View Speakers / Event
    Webinar

    We are pleased to hear from US Representative Joe Crowley and US Representative Jack Kingston during the final weeks of the election campaign. This follows our session in July providing an insight into the US election and what it could mean for Europe.

    The elections will be taking place against a backdrop of seismic events in the US – the handling of the pandemic, the economic effects and the Black Lives Matter protests, as well as issues like China, trade, etc. The campaign has been intense and divisive, between two men well into their 70s, and the result could be close. What does it mean for us in Europe? On the economy? On trade? On alliances? On support for a rules-based international system? On China and Russia? Join us for a lively debate that will not predict the outcome, but will give a sense of the implications.

    Tony Reed, EMEA Chair of the global Corporate Practice, will introduce you to the speakers and Matthew Kirk, International Affairs Advisor, will host the discussion. Our panelists are:

    • Former US Representative Joe Crowley, Senior Policy Advisor - former Chairman of the US House of Representatives Democratic Caucus, a senior ranking position among House Democrats
    • Former US Representative Jack Kingston, Principal - former Vice-chairman of the US House of Representatives Republican Conference, a senior ranking position among House Republicans

    Questions will be invited from the audience before and during this discussion.
