Event description

Description

One of the fundamental ideals of the U.S. government is the peaceful transition of power between political parties from administration to adminstration. As a result, U.S. policy can tend to fluctuate as the influence of each political party ebbs and flows. The domestic effects of this ebb and flow can be seen by decisiosn made by presidents, legislatures, and government agencies. However, as many have observed, these shifts do not operate in a vacuum. New policies and decisions stemming from transitions of new power in the U.S. have direct effects on international law and policy. Using the U.S.'s most recent transition from the Obama Adminstration to the Trump Adminstration as a case study, our panelists will discuss intended and unintended effects on the international community from changes in enviornmental policy, migration, trade, financial technologies, and healthcare—emphasizing the gravity of this particular shift.
