The US Elections: End of an Era?

L’Amérique et nous | America and us

In a special dossier entitled “L’Amérique et nous” published in Le Temps on 9 October 2020, four professors from the Graduate Institute share their analyses on: “the transatlantic fault”, “golden business” and “the race for innovation”. The goal of this dossier is to show, in a multidisciplinary way, how the relationship between Switzerland (and more broadly Europe) and the United States has evolved in the preceding years to understand what remains of America’s “soft power” in 2020.
