From Trump to Biden: International Views of the U.S. from Political Scientists
Sponsored by the Office for Faculty Advancement
What is the view in Europe, China and Latin American of the U.S. global role in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic and the insurrection at the U.S. capitol on January 6th? In this panel, three of our international political science faculty will draw on their years of analysis of different areas of the globe to draw portraits of the view of the U.S. from several international vantage points. Dr. Nyiri is a political scientist and polling expert who directed the Gallup World Poll-Europe and Transatlantic Trends, two annual large-scale surveys of public opinion in Europe and the U.S. His current research focuses on transatlantic relations, European politics, and public diplomacy. Dr. Wishnick, an expert on China and Russia and author of the www.chinasresourcerisks.com blog, is working on her second book on Chinese foreign policy thanks to a Fulbright award. Mr. Carnevali, is a former Venezuelan diplomat who coordinated his country’s team in the United Nations Security Council and facilitated negotiations on disarmament, peacekeeping, and peacebuilding. His research has focused on Latin American regional organizations and US-Latin American relations.
