Leiden-UvA Panels: Before and After the US Presidential Elections (Webinars on 27 October and 10 November 2020)

Why has the lead up to the US elections been so contentious? What is the likelihood that we will see more protest, (legal) conflict, or even political violence? To what extent does the election reflect democratic erosion in the US? What are the prospects for US democracy moving forward?

Please join us for two round table discussions before and after the US election with panelists from the social sciences and humanities. These events are hosted by Leiden University (Leiden University Center for International Relations/Centre for the Study of Political Parties and Representation) and the University of Amsterdam (Department of Political Science/Amsterdam Center for Conflict Studies).
