Exploring foreign policy issues facing the presidential candidates in the November 2016 election, and analysing global perceptions of Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton.
The November 2016 US presidential and congressional elections are occurring at a time of change inside the United States and uncertainty in the world.
How the next administration adapts to a host of international challenges is central not only to the United States’ prosperity and security, but also - given its continuing global economic and political power - to the prosperity and security of countries across the world.
Looking at US foreign policy from an external perspective, Chatham House analyses implications for other countries to help them to understand how a new president's policies will affect them.
As part of this work, the Chatham House US and Americas Programme is producing a series of Election Notes (made possible through the support of the Stavros Niarchos Foundation) on major foreign policy issues, explaining the background, the relative positions of the main contenders for the White House, and the international implications of each.
