Topics of 2024 - Elections in the USA

Expert Analyses

Josef Braml: Globalisation and Danger of War

Our speakers and experts have answers to these and many other questions about the US elections. Josef Braml, leading expert on the USA and Secretary General of the German Group of the Trilateral Commission, is one of the most distinguished experts on the USA of our time. He has been observing and following developments in the USA and assessing their impact on Germany for decades. In an interview with the weekly magazine Forum, our speaker Josef Braml said that the election in the USA must be a wake-up call, because globalisation is being turned back, even by Joe Biden - and this increases the risk of war.

Cathryn Clüver Ashbrook: Economic future under Joe Biden

Our speaker Cathryn Clüver Ashbrook is a recognised expert on US politics and relations between the EU and the USA. The political scientist is also personally interested in the election campaign in the USA, as she is both a German and an American citizen. In an interview with SWR1, Clüver Ashbrook said that Joe Biden had done a lot to make the US economy fit for the future, but voters did not seem to register the improvements.

Wolfgang Ischinger: Trump and the Geopolitical Situation

Wolfgang Ischinger is President of the Board of Trustees of the Munich Security Conference Foundation and former Chairman of the Munich Security Conference (MSC). In his lectures, Wolfgang Ischinger talks about Europe and global challenges, among other things, and shares his thoughts on the geopolitical situation. In an interview with the Tagesspiegel, Ischinger said that the world would look different if Trump were to be re-elected US President. Ischinger, who can look back on more than half a century of diplomatic experience, called for creativity to prevent a second term in office for Donald Trump.

Pippa Malmgren: Expert on International Political Developments

Bush during his 2000 election campaign and Special Assistant to the President on the National Economic Council. She was responsible for financial market issues in the White House and was a member of the President's working groups on financial markets, corporate governance and terrorism risks to the economy.
