About

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.
