PLEASE NOTE: Due to flooding in our auditorium at Chatham House, this event will now take place at The Royal Society - a short walk away from the Institute.

This event is now full and registration has closed. If you were unable to register, an audio recording will be available online shortly after the event.

This event will be a first look analysis of the US presidential election, looking back over the election campaigns of the two major party nominees and looking ahead to what we can expect from the new administration.

Commentators have struggled to predict the results of this election, debating over campaign strategies, voter demographics and voter turn-out. Following the US presidential election on 8 November, this panel will reflect back on the Clinton and Trump campaigns, analyse how the result’s played out on the day and look to the future of America under its new president.
