Conference 934: Will the election of 2020 mark a change in American foreign policy? [fr]

On the eve of the Democratic primary for the American presidential election of 2020, all the candidates agree on one point: the return of American "values" in diplomacy. But what do we really know about the orientations of the different candidates?

What about the transatlantic relationship? Which countries will America look to after 2020? If re-elected, would Donald Trump keep his "America First" watchword?

During this Conference 934 dedicated to the American presidential election of 2020, Jonathan Tepperman, Editor-in-Chief of Foreign Policy magazine, and Célia Belin, Visiting Fellow at Center on the US and Europe Brookings Institution, and Justin Vogt, senior editor at Foreign Affairs magazine, will try to decipher the foreign policy orientations of the different candidates as well as the challenges facing America in 2020.
