Globalism vs. Americanism: Foreign Policy in the 2016 Election

Karl Friedhoff, Fellow, Public Opinion and Asia Policy; Craig Kafura, Assistant Director, Public Opinion and Foreign Policy

We will live stream this program at 6:15 p.m. CT


This November, voters face a choice between two different visions of America’s role in the world. At the core of these divergent presidential policies are issues related to immigration, the global economy, national security, and the relationship with America’s allies. How have the candidates’ positions shifted from the primary season – if at all – to appeal to both their core constituents and the average American voter in the general election? And how are these policies matching up with American public opinion? 

Following a conversation with Council experts on the findings of our 2016 survey of American public opinion on US foreign policy, join us in watching the 2016 Presidential Foreign Policy debate in our new state-of-the-art conference center.
