Online, by ticket.

On the 20th January, Joe Biden will become President of the United States of America, ending four years of the Presidency of Donald Trump.

What does this transition mean for the USA and the rest of the world? What happened over the last four years, and why - and what does it mean for the future of the West? 

Join us on the evening of the inauguration for a special Intellectual Forum event to hear from Patrick Davies OBE, the former British Deputy Ambassador to the US. 

Patrick is a highly experienced diplomat, with 25 years’ experience in the UK, Europe, the Middle East, and the United States. As Deputy Ambassador to the US, he worked closely with the Obama and Trump White Houses. 

His first book - The Great American Delusion - talks about how America, blinded by myths of its own exceptionalism, has failed to tackle serious political, social and economic problems which are exacerbating divisions in its society, poisoning its politics and ultimately fuelling America’s decline.
