Against the backdrop of a global pandemic and widespread civil unrest, a record number of Americans voted in the 2020 United States presidential election. As the new Biden-Harris administration looks beyond the election, what can we expect?

We invite you to join the Pardee RAND Graduate School for a discussion on December 10, on the challenges and opportunities ahead for the new administration. Dean Susan Marquis will moderate a discussion with journalist Soledad O’Brien and Pardee RAND faculty members Debra Knopman and Howard Shatz. They will share their insights and discuss the changes we can expect on issues from energy and climate change to economic policy and COVID-19 response and recovery efforts.
