Specialist of US Government from AU (Washington, DC) to Give Special Talk on the Trump Presidency & Democracy

Tuesday, 09 April 2019

chris_edelson_au2%201.jpgOn April 16, AGS will host a special talk and discussion about the Trump Presidency and Democracy during a Wine and Cheese evening animated by Chris Edelson, Assistant Professor of Government and Director of the Politics, Policy and Law (PPL) Scholars Program at American University in Washington D.C., a partner of AGS.

Chris Edelson will discuss the threats to the Constitution in the Trump era, with a particular focus on the tension between authoritarianism and constitutional democracy in the US and the success or failure of the US Constitution in the context of the authoritarian threat posed by Donald Trump.

Chris Edelson's teaching and research interests focus on presidential national security power under the U.S. Constitution. His first book, Emergency Presidential Power: From the Drafting of the Constitution to the War on Terror, was published by the University of Wisconsin Press in fall 2013. His second book, Power Without Constraint: The Post 9/11 Presidency and National Security was published in spring 2016.

American University has been a partner of the American Graduate School in Paris since 2015 through a dual program allowing students to earn two Master's degrees over the course of three years.

The talk will take place at 6:30 pm. If you wish more information on this event or if you wish to attend, please email rsvp@ags.edu.

quote leftAGS brought me closer to the world, and to those multinational perspectives that always tended to evade a simple islander. My own ideals were tested and defended on a daily basis, as I was challenged by almost everyone, from German, Russian and Ghanaian classmates to Ambassadors and professors, who have time and again embraced the practical and academic realms of life. Paris' hard-knock life style, AGS' academic structure and my own drive to succeed have definitely provided me with the foundation to give working life the pursuit it deserves.quote right
