Should the U.S. close its border to immigrants? What are the ramifications of income inequality? How has COVID-19 changed life as we know it?  Why are Americans so politically polarized? How can we address racial injustice?

As the 2020 election approaches, faculty members from across Stanford will explore and examine some of the biggest challenges facing society today. Each week will be dedicated to a different topic, ranging from health care and the economy to racial injustice and challenges to democracy.

Faculty with expertise in philosophy, economics, law, political science, psychology, medicine, history, and more will come together for lively conversations about the issues not only shaping this election season but also the nation and world at large.

There will also be Q&A following the initial discussion.

The webinar will be recorded and the link to the video shared on this event page.
