This event analysed 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 Trump 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 result, this panel reflected back on the Clinton and Trump campaigns, analysed how the result’s played out on the day and look to the future of America under its new president.
