The presidency of Donald Trump has vast implications for international affairs and even the internal politics of other countries — it could lead to geopolitical realignments on a global scale.

In response, the Jackson School has launched a series of talks on “Trump in the World: International Implications of the Trump Presidency” open to students for credit and to the public.

This 10-lecture series examines the impact of the 2016 election on countries and regions around the world. Each week, Jackson School faculty experts will explore perspectives from Europe, Asia, Mexico, Russia and the Middle East as well as questions of climate change, and historical context in the U.S. presidency.
