PART 1: Global Perspectives on the 2020 U.S. Presidential Election
The Division of Global Engagement (co-sponsored with the Office of the Vice President for Research and
Innovation and University Advancement) invites students, faculty, staff, alumni, and any UO affiliates to
a virtual post-election forum on November 10.
How does the rest of the world view our election process, the emerging results, the future of U.S. democracy
and the position of the U.S. in the world? As we all process the results, it can help to understand how the rest
of the world views and makes sense of what is playing out in one of America’s most consequential elections.
