'Who Will Make America Great (Again)?', Hosted by International Diplomatic Student Association, 16 March
Consequences of the outcome of the U.S. presidential elections on the current world order. The International Diplomatic Student Association would like to invite you to its second public event in the spring semester of 2016 which will be a panel discussion focusing on the biggest question of the upcoming U.S. presidential election: Who will make America great ’again’?

The aim of the discussion is to examine the election’s possible outcomes and its consequences on the current world order while highlighting the key strategies of the candidates’ campaign.

The basic idea of the discussion can be best illustrated with a passage from George Friedman’s ’The next decade’:

„The American President is the most important political leader in the world. The reason is simple: he governs a nation whose economic and military policies shape the lives of people in every country on every continent.

The President can and does order invasions, embargos, and sanctions.

The economic policies he shapes will resonate in billions of lives, perhaps over many generations. During the next decade, who the president is and what he (or she) chooses to do will often affect the lives of non-Americans more than the decisions of their own governments.”

Members of the panel discussion

Ms Flóra Rétfalvi, Communication expert, Obama Campaign
Mr Márton Ugrósdy, Research Fellow, Institute for Foreign Affairs and Trade
Mr Tamás Magyarics, Head of the North American Department, Ministry for Foreign Affairs and Trade

Moderator: Mr Nick Thorpe, Eastern and Central European Correspondant, BBC

Date: Wed 16 March 2016 7 pm
Location: Room 2001, Building E, Corvinus University of Budapest
