America’s Place in the World: Domestic Perceptions Influencing the Election

28 June 2016 - 8:00am to 9:15am

Chatham House, London, UK


Bruce Stokes, Director Global Economic Attitudes, Pew Research Center 



As Americans decide on their next president, people outside the country who do not have a vote in this election nevertheless have a great stake in the outcome. What is the degree of isolationist or protectionist sentiment among Americans today? Are they committed to multilateralism or do they favour going it alone? How willing are Americans to help nations less fortunate? How partisan are these sentiments and how do the views of each candidate’s supporters differ? All such public opinion matters because when Americans elect a President his or her policies will affect the rest of the world. Building on fresh research from the Pew Research Center, Bruce Stokes will join us to provide his insight and answers to these questions and consider what this means for the election and the next administration.

Attendance at this event is by invitation only.
