The second event of the “Road to Election 2024” virtual event series focuses on Franklin Foer’s gripping biography of Joe Biden, following his first term in office: The Last Politician. With the moderation of Dr. Johannes Thimm, Franklin Foer analyzes the triumphs and failures of Biden’s leadership from the 2022 “midterm miracle” to the power of the Inflation Reduction Act, all with an eye for what this will mean for the upcoming presidential elections in 2024. The event is organized and hosted by Road to Election partner organization Amerikahaus München / Stiftung Bayerisches Amerikahaus gGmbH. Please find more information and register to participate here.
The 2024 U.S. election will significantly shape the transatlantic political environment and policy landscape. Transatlantic organizations play an integral role in convening thought leaders, bringing a transatlantic perspective to U.S. and European domestic policy discussions, and influencing public discourse on both sides of the Atlantic.This will be particularly important in 2024, which is why the Aspen Institute Germany is pleased to partner with over 25 other transatlantic organizations and political foundations on the “Road to Election 2024” virtual event series. Information about all events in the series can be found at: www.roadtoelection.de. Running from January 2024 to January 2025, the virtual event series will host in-depth discussions and foster a vibrant exchange of ideas in the lead-up to the pivotal 2024 U.S. election. The initiative’s events will feature prominent researchers, policymakers, commentators, and civil society representatives, exploring diverse formats and a wide array of topics. From public polling and media impact to electoral demographics, the future of U.S. democracy, and pressing policy issues like trade and immigration, the “Road to Election” series aims to offer comprehensive insights for audiences in both the United States and Germany.
