    Carnegie Connects: The Good, Bad, and Ugly: How the World sees the U.S.

    Critics can make a strong case that the United States has never been less respected or admired abroad than it is today. President Trump’s disruptive policies abroad and his mishandling of the pandemic at home have fundamentally undermined America’s credibility in the eyes of both allies and adversaries in the short-run, but will the damage last? And if Joe Biden wins in November, what will the world expect from American leadership? Join us as three veteran foreign correspondents, Christiane Amanpour, Steven Erlanger, and David Rennie, sit down with Aaron David Miller to discuss America and its role in world.

    What Are Europe’s Expectations if Biden Wins?

    The real question facing European leaders is therefore not how to restore transatlantic relations to its pre-Trump days, but rather how to craft a new vision for the future—one where Washington may not always be in the driver’s seat and Europe is capable of taking on more responsibility.

    • Unresolved Questions on the EU Rule of Law Report

      • Alina Mungiu-Pippidi
      • October 20, 2020

      The EU has chastised member states who do not adhere to its professed values. However, a new report about the rule of law falls short in providing the objective basis to withhold funding to those who defy democracy. EU funds should be allocated on direct criteria related to poor governance. Otherwise, recovery funds can be siphoned by the political clienteles of government parties.

      Indian-Americans Are With Democrats

      • Milan Vaishnav, Sumitra Badrinathan, Devesh Kapur
      • October 15, 2020
      • Hindustan Times

      On issues ranging from immigration to press freedom, the policy preferences of Indian-Americans line up remarkably well with those of the political Left. Indeed, the leading reason Democrats and independents cite for their aversion to the Republican Party is the latter’s intolerance of minorities.
