The 2016 U.S. Presidential Election is less than one year away. The first caucus in Iowa will be held in less than two months. On November 8 2016, Americans will finally decide who will become the 45th president of the United States. As of now, the rivalry among the remaining 15 presidential candidates is heating up. Both Republicans and Democrats have held debates to reveal candidates’ stances on prominent issues, such as ISIS, immigration, economic disparity, climate change, criminal justice, and health care.

Given that U.S. policies often carry implications for other nations, the race is drawing global interest, and Indonesia is no exception. Under the Obama administration, the U.S. focused on a vital and long-overdue ‘pivot to Asia’. Now that a new administration will soon be taking over, will this change the U.S. stance toward this vast and increasingly important region?

Find the answers to this question and many more such as: What is the electoral process for the 2016 U.S. Presidential Election? What is the timeline and what are the key dates to watch? What are the central issues being discussed? Who are the candidates and what are their prospects? What impact will the outcome of the 2016 U.S. Presidential Election have on U.S. – Asia relations?

The United States-Indonesia Society (USINDO), U.S. Embassy Jakarta, and @america are delighted to host Mr. Casimir A. Yost in this general lecture. This event is part of USINDO-U.S. Embassy 2016 US Presidential Election Open Forum Series.
