YPFP Brussels, in cooperation with the U.S. Mission to the EU, is delighted to invite you to an evening discussion on the U.S. and European elections 2012 with David Mark, Senior Editor of Politico and author of "Going Dirty: The Art of Negative Campaigning".

With several high profile and polemic elections taking place in the midst of the economic crisis on both side of the Atlantic, are we doomed to a year of negative campaigning? Have we seen the biggest electoral shock of 2012 or is there more to come? How does the art of political campaigning differ in the U.S. and Europe and what can we learn from each other? How will the outcome of November's U.S. Presidential elections impact Europe? How will the transatlantic relationship play a role in U.S. the campaigns? Will domestic politics and the economy trump foreign policy issues in 2012?

Please join YPFP Brussels next Wednesday, 23 May 2012, for what promises to be a stimulating debate by registering here.  An American themed drinks  reception will follow the event.
