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.
All seminars will be organised as webinars during the autumn.
