Research event
5 November 2020 — 4:00PM TO 5:00PM

The International Affairs Webinar Series provides readers and Chatham House members the opportunity to discuss pertinent topics with experts in the field.

The series’ panellists are recent International Affairs authors who will discuss their research and answer questions you have about its impact on your business, policy measures or area of interest.

Drawing on their recent articles discussing long-term policy decisions as well as the US’ reactions to the global health crisis, this webinar touches on a range of international and domestic issues, including health, the US’ domestic economy and national security.

This is to highlight how decades of assumptions and choices are combining with the most invasive global crisis of the post-war era to impact the US’ global leadership, status as a security provider and its position within the liberal international order.
