The 2020 presidential election will be decided in large part by the Midwest with key issues like trade wars and immigration driving the debates. Access to balanced views on the economic, political, and social factors that are influencing American foreign policy will be critically important.
This fall, the Council on Global Affairs and the Financial Times are hosting a series of discussions on foreign policy topics central to the 2020 United States presidential election. As voters confront starkly different foreign policy worldviews, the America in 2020 event series convenes influential voices with distinct perspectives to examine issues with far-reaching implications for America’s future.
As a tax-exempt 501(c)(3) organization, the Chicago Council on Global Affairs does not support or oppose any candidate for political office and is prohibited from any political fundraising.
