During the panel, “Election 2016 Debrief: What Happened?! What’s Next?,” speakers will reflect on the U.S. presidential campaign — from polling to the candidates’ strategies — and provide analysis of the results.
Panelists will answer three questions from their own areas of expertise: How did we get here? What did we learn? And what’s next? They are experts in such fields as campaigns and elections, political polarization, foreign affairs, race and ethnic politics, among others.
