Networking Breakfast


Welcome Remarks


Keynote Presentation: What is at stake for the world in the US 2024 elections?


The US elections come at a time of intense geopolitical competition, an economic security agenda that threatens globalisation, and two major wars with international consequences that are driving a wedge between the West and the Global South. The likely Republican and Democratic front runners present two radically different visions not only for democracy in the US, but also for US interests in the multilateral order. How resilient are US democracy, and its foreign policy engagements and might they be upended by voters in a few swing states, or is US power more durable than it appears.
