The 2020 election will decide the future of America—and the rest of the world. With the rise of fascist attitudes and leftist movements, what does this mean for our increasingly polarised society?

Donald Trump has proven difficult to oust by his opponents, so who will be the frontrunners as the 2020 election approaches, and will there be a peaceful transfer of power?

Join Saeed Khan, Amy Pope and Erol Morkoç in this timely event as they discuss these questions as well as how mainstream attitudes to politics have changed as people become more politically engaged, and how populist movements may potentially affect this important election.
