The US Elections And What Comes Next

The U.S. Elections and What Comes Next 
Thursday, October 29th
10:30 am New York, 3:30 pm Paris

With only a few days left until America chooses its president, join us for a lively discussion on what the current election cycle has revealed about the American electoral process. 

  • What can—and do—statistical models tell us about who the winner will be? 
  • Does our electoral system need reform? 
  • How does the rest of the world view the latest developments in the American experiment?
Political scientist Andrew Gelman (Department of Statistics and the School of International and Public Affairs, Columbia University), discusses his election modeling system (published weekly in The Economist magazine) and electoral system reform with host Professor Safwan M. Masri, Executive Vice President for Global Centers and Global Development, Columbia University. Joining the discussion will be Wen-kuni Ceant (Winnie), Fulbright Scholar and CEO of Politicking. Introducing the event and moderating students’ questions and answers will be Shannon Marquez, Dean of Undergraduate Global Engagement.
Columbia students who are active in current election campaigns and in electoral reform will add their on-the-ground perspectives on their work and what is at stake. Global Columbia Collaboratory students will provide questions that will help frame the discussion, and Global Center Directors from around the world will offer their regional perspectives on these U.S. elections.
