The Center on US Politics and Power at the Finnish Institute of International Affairs is organizing a research series on the characteristics of the US role in global politics.
The events are organized in order to encourage cooperation and networking among researchers and experts working on US-related topics. The Center also warmly welcomes students who are interested in US politics or transatlantic relations to participate in our seminars. The seminars provide a platform for discussing current US affairs, in addition to presentations by invited guest speakers. They also give an opportunity for student presentations and discussions of their research.
