World Policy Newsletter, Week of June 24th

Global Perspectives on the U.S. Election

This week marks the beginning of our new online series covering global perspectives on the 2016 U.S. presidential election. Joseph A Cari Jr, chairman of World Policy Institute’s Board of Directors, introduces the series and discusses the importance of condemning hate-filled rhetoric.

In the first piece in the series, Mitchell Prather considers how a Clinton or Trump presidency might shape trade relations between the United States and African nations.

Next, Jonathan Stubbs compares the Trump phenomenon and the push for “Brexit,” arguing that victory for both would be deeply destabilizing in Europe and beyond.

Stay tuned for additional perspectives from Singapore, Turkey, Israel, Mexico, Canada, France, and India!
