As the US election campaign heats up, our next “Road to Election 2024” virtual event focuses on the future of US support for Ukraine. With a critical legislative bill that includes foreign policy assistance alongside border security and asylum policy measures still under negotiation in Congress, the likelihood of its passage dwindles. This scenario poses significant risks for Ukraine in its defense against the Russian invasion and places additional pressure on European allies to swiftly expand their assistance to Ukraine, especially in military aid.
In a virtual discussion with US foreign policy experts, we will discuss the factors shaping US policy on Ukraine during the election year, the geopolitical ramifications of conflicts such as those expanding in the Middle East, the options for the Biden administration to continue the support, and the implications for Ukraine and European allies. Speakers include Scott Cullinane, Director of Government Affairs, Razom for Ukraine, Andrea Kendall-Taylor, Senior Fellow and Director of the Transatlantic Security Program, Center for a New American Security (CNAS), and Hannah Thoburn, Senior Professional Staff Member for Europe and Eurasia, US Senate Foreign Relations Committee. If you would like to participate, please register 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.
