The U.S. 2016 Presidential Elections were amongst the most important decisions of the year. Throughout the year, the U.S. presidential campaign captured the attention not only of American citizens, but also of millions around the world. The culmination of that long presidential campaign season came to a head on January 20, 2017. At noon local time on that day, the second term of President Barack H. Obama expired and President Donald J. Trump was inaugurated as the 45th President of the United States. But what happens now that the inaugural ceremonies are over?
To find out, join YPFP, in partnership with the U.S. Mission to the European Union, for an evening with Professor Steven Ekovich, specialist in U.S. politics and foreign policy currently teaching at the American University in Paris. You will have the opportunity to learn about what exactly happens during the first 100 days of the Presidency and broaden your knowledge about the executive and nominating powers of POTUS (President of the United States) in the Executive and Judicial Branches, the role of cabinet and non-cabinet members and the interaction between POTUS and Congress.
The event will be followed by a reception, generously provided by the U.S. Mission to the EU.
Professor Steven Ekovich works in the International and Comparative Politics Department at the American University in Paris. He specializes and publishes on U.S. politics and foreign policy. Between 1984 and 2000 he was associate professor at the École Polytechnique. Professor Ekovich also lectured and consulted abroad during this time, visiting almost 30 countries in Europe, Africa and Central Asia. In 1999-2000, Professor Ekovich was the first American to participate in the 52nd National Session of the Institut des Hautes Études de Défense Nationale (the French War College). He was also a consultant for both the Secrétariat Général de la Défense Nationale (the approximate equivalent of the U.S. National Security Council) and the French Ministry of Defense between 1992 and 1997.
