Welcome to the first episode of our 2020 presidential election series. To prepare for the upcoming election, POFA will discuss the recent emergence of a progressive approach to foreign policy as well as what foreign policy would look like under either a Biden administration or a second Trump term. Then, we will be examine the role of technology in election interference and the importance of polling Americans on foreign policy issues.
In our first episode of the series, we will be discussing progressive foreign policy, outlined by policy makers such as Senators Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders. So, what are the core themes of progressive foreign policy? How do they differ from the more traditional realist vs idealist or conservative vs liberal fault lines? What might the future of progressive foreign policy look like? Joining us to discuss these questions is Professor Ganesh Sitaraman.
