On 4 November 2008 the US will elect a new president. In January 2009, the new president will inherit a daunting array of international dangers, challenges and opportunities. How will he or she respond?
In the spirit of great debate befitting a presidential election the Global Leadership Forum will address the most pressing global issues facing the US; ranging from relations with transatlantic allies and the Middle East, to climate change and the crisis in the global economy.
