Event description

Description

The gap between the US and the rest of the world has demonstrably widened under the Trump administration, and this phenomenon has consequences. In the week after his dismissive remarks and display of raw ego — provoking laughter in the General Assembly — talk among government leaders and commentators worldwide has turned to the reality that the US has opted out of constructive leadership.

Now, the question is what the rest of the world will do about it. Hear their voices from this panel discussion with academics and policy makers from across the world.

This is a Global Platform event co-sponsored by PassBlue, independent coverage of the United Nations and presented by the Julien J. Studley Graduate Programs in International Affairs at The New School.
