Introduction, Christianne Hardy, Interim Director, John Sloan Dickey Center for International Understanding at Dartmouth College
The breaching of the US Capitol, a symbol of one of the world’s oldest democracies, by a pro-Trump mob on January 6, 2021, marked the culminating point of years of seditious rhetoric, incitement to violence, disinformation, and institutional destabilization by the outgoing US President. Next to the far-reaching implications at home, these events are bound to have a serious impact on US foreign policy after Joe Biden takes office. This panel co-organized by the American Academy in Berlin and the John Sloan Dickey Center for International Understanding at Dartmouth College seeks to address these implications as well as likely international security ramifications more broadly.
