Kochi to host conference on US Presidential Election 2016
A day-long conference on US Presidential Election 2016 will attempt to present an overview of the ongoing US presidential election campaign and the impact of the positions taken by the presidential candidates on multiple issues beyond borders.

The conference will deliberate on the political parties and candidates in the fray and their policies and issues that shape the election campaign. It will engage experts on American politics and foreign policy for generating insights that will help develop an in-depth understanding of the changes in the election process over the years and the country's prospective foreign policy overtures.

The changing trends in electioneering hold the potential to influence the pluralist-liberal nature of the American society and party regime. Public opinion will be a determining factor that will drive the nation to redefine its objectives in serving its citizens.

Amongst the major trends that emerged in this election year is the reordering of American political thinking. The series of primaries in 2016 has already set in motion the debate on the role of the US in the changing global order. Therefore, the conference warrants providing an understanding of the re-positioning of America in the political and economic world order.

CPPR-Centre for Strategic Studies based in Kochi is actively studying the international implications of the US presidential campaign and the ensuing presidential election. This conference is organised by CPPR in association with Sacred Heart College, Thevara, Kochi and South India American Studies Network - Kerala Chapter.
