Shortly before the Presidential Elections on 6 November 2012, the Jean Monnet Chair for European Integration in cooperation with the Friedrich Naumann Foundation organized a roundtable debate dealing with “The US before the 2012 Presidential Elections – Implications for Europe”. The debate took place on 19 October 2012, 18pm at the University of Mainz.
Discussed were not only the questions of who will be the next US President and of how different Obama’s campaign was in comparison to 2008, but also the future of US domestic policy concerning the economy, unemployment and education. The main focus of the debate was on the design and future of transatlantic relations as well as on the implications of the elections for Europe.
