The 2020 Presidential election is the most critical in recent United States history, and will have major national and global consequences. Will the United States’ polarization result in constitutional crises post-election or can we be reconciled?
How will the incoming administration impact the global balance of power—the challenge of China, Russian disruptions, rising pressures in the Middle East, and more? How will key nations react to the election outcome? Will the United States cooperate on universal threats like climate change, pandemics, nuclear proliferation, terrorism, etc.?
Now, more than ever, we need informed analysis and objective insights.
Professor Ralph Buultjens will discuss these and other concerns in this online course.
