The Evolution of American Conservatism, the Presidency of Donald Trump and the Implications for US Foreign Policy

August 20 | 1:15 pm - 2:30 pm

At the event, Mr Spicer will discuss changes in US politics and, in particular, how conservatism and the Republican Party have evolved in recent decades. He will go on to consider the presidency of Donald Trump, the areas where the foreign policy posture of the current administration is truly different from past administrations and the areas where there has been less change.

Please note that this event will take place in the Ball Room at the Gresham Hotel, 23 O’Connell Street Upper, Dublin 1. 

Please note the slightly later-than-usual start time.
