The School of Public Policy & Governance presents

The U.S. Presidential Election and the Trump Presidency: How Did We Get Here? What Comes Next?

A live, video-conference roundtable discussion among experts from the University of Toronto and Sciences Po/Paris - sponsored by the Centre for the Study of the United States.

The 2016 contest between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump may have been one of the most unusual elections in U.S. history. How else to describe the first woman nominated by a major political party running against a businessman/reality television star with no office-holding experience, for instance - or another conclusion which saw the contender who lost the popular vote winning in the Electoral College? There have already been many attempts to decipher the election results, but surveying the terrain during the week of Trump's inauguration seems appropriate. Experts based in Paris and Toronto will also share thoughts about what can be expected from the new U.S. president.
