The 2020 Election Crisis in Global Perspective

Panel Discussion

A variation on our regular Friday talks, a panel of scholars from around the globe will join Kinder Institute Chair and MU Professor of History Jay Sexton on March 5 at 3:30pm via Zoom to discuss how America’s current electoral crisis is being understood abroad and place it in a frame of reference beyond U.S. presidential politics. What damage is being done to the liberal international order and how does the volatility experienced in other polities relate and compare to recent events in America? Parties interested in attending should contact Thomas Kane,, to be added to the list of people who receive Zoom links for all Kinder Institute talks on the day of events.
