The 2020 U.S. Presidential Election and the events leading up to November 3 continue to shape public discussion and debate on both sides of the Atlantic. 

This is why several Berlin-based transatlantic institutions and political foundations have joined forces in order to host the virtual event series Road to Election Night & Beyond #R2EN. Together, it is our goal to facilitate in-depth discussion amongst leading researchers, policymakers, think-tanks, and civil society in the run up to this year's U.S. election. For more information on the virtual series, you may head over to

We are delighted to cordially invite you to join us on September 1, 2020, from 5:30 p.m. - 6:30 p.m. (CEST).

Recent developments focusing on this year’s presidential election and possible repercussions on the Euro-American partnership may further be addressed.

The moderated discussion will last about 35 minutes, followed by 25 minutes of Q&A.
