On November 17, 2016, political scientists from Freie Universität Berlin and Indiana University in the US will discuss the effects of the recent presidential election on national and international politics. The discussion will take place as part of a joint speaker series being organized by Freie Universität and Indiana University during the 2016/2017 year. Five events are being held in Indiana and in Berlin, where political scientists from both universities will address issues of international politics in English. The events are public, and admission is free.
Nine days after the recent presidential election in the United States, political scientist Dr. Christian Lammert, a professor at the John F. Kennedy Institute for North American Studies at Freie Universität Berlin, and Jean C. Robinson, a professor of political science at Indiana University in Bloomington, will discuss the consequences of the election results. Ms. Sudha David-Wilp, the deputy head of the Berlin office of the German Marshall Fund, will moderate the discussion and questions by the audience.
The Joint Speaker Series of Indiana University and Freie Universität Berlin was designed to promote joint research and scholarly exchange as well as to initiate public debates. The opening event was held in Bloomington, Indiana (USA) in September. This is the second event of the series and will take place in Berlin-Kreuzberg. The third one will also be in Berlin at the end of January.
