What does a divided United States government mean for foreign policy and global affairs? On the line with me to talk through some of the international implications of the US Midterm elections is Heather Hurlburt. She is the director of the New Models of Policy Change project at the New America Foundation and is a longtime player and analyst of US foreign policy.
In this conversation, which was recorded a day after the midterms, we talk though some of the fallout from the elections as it pertains to foreign policy. We discuss the some of the new personalities that will lead key committees of the US Congress, like the new chairs of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee and the House Committee on Foreign Affairs. We also discuss how some newly elected members of the House of Representatives may put their stamp on US foreign policy.
If you have 20 minutes and want to understand some of the foreign policy implications of the US midterm election results, have a listen.
