Understanding Trump’s policies
With Robert Malley
Introduction by Gaïdz Minassian
Monday 13 January 2020, at 7 pm
While the United States enter a major electoral year, incumbent president Donald Trump spent the past four years changing American foreign policy, without any regard for the country’s multilateral commitments, nor for advancing traditional alliances. What are the American president’s reference points as he works towards a second term? How can we understand his policies? Robert Malley, president of the International Crisis Group (ICG) as well as a former advisor to President Clinton and President Obama, will share his thoughts during a lecture facilitated by Gaïdz Minassian.
Robert Malley is the President of the International Crisis Group (ICG), a transatlantic think tank specialised in conflict resolution. Trained as a lawyer and political scientist, Robert Malley served several roles in both the Clinton and Obama administrations. He served at the National Security Council under President Barack Obama from 2014 until 2017. Prior to that, he was a special advisor to President Bill Clinton, and a member of the American delegation which helped organise the Camp David summit in 2000. An expert on the Near-East, particularly the Israeli-Palestinian peace process, he expanded his skillset when he became the Special ISIS advisor to President Obama. Robert Malley often participates in American debate and brings his insights to American, European and International press coverage.
