What is happening? – the impact of the US presidential elections

Teams Live Event
Banner Panel US elections 2020
Detta evenemang startar Hankens Studia Generalia-serie där vi behandlar aktuella frågor och bjuder in gäster för en diskussion utifrån deras expertis och erfarenheter. Evenemanget är öppet för alla att delta online och hålls på engelska.

The US Presidential elections have an impact also on many of us outside the US. In this session we will look at the elections from different perspectives.

What are the economic consequences of political uncertainty? What can we expect in the coming weeks or months? What will change if either candidate wins? What is the impact on the Finnish industry and the Finnish economy? And how does it affect a US citizen living in Finland? 

The event is streamed from Hankens Assembly Hall via Teams Live 
Wednesday 28 October between 14.30 - 15.45 

Registration here (by 27.10)

Hankens staff and students can also join the event without registration here
