Post-2016 Politics and Government
Post-2016 Politics and Government

The 2016 election resulted in a seismic shift in political power. As the President-elect prepares to take office, many Americans, including those working in public service, are anxiously waiting to see how the government’s structure and operations will change, and how the field of public service will be affected.

On December 7 at 6:30 p.m., please join NYU Wagner for a conversation among expert political commentators, journalists, and faculty. The panel – to convene at NYU’s Kimmel Center for University Life, 60 Washington Square South, New York, N.Y., Eisner and Lubin Auditorium – will explore what the road ahead looks like with the new administration.

What will happen to the existing bureaucracy at the federal, state, and local levels? How will public service and advocacy professionals operate differently? How has this played out in the past when there have been notable changes in US politics? How will the two political parties be impacted?

     Panelists will include:

  • Susan Del Percio: Republican strategist; political commentator
  • Tim Naftali: CNN Presidential Historian; former director of the Nixon Presidential Library; NYU Wagner Clinical AssociateProfessor of Public Service
  • Eleanor Randolph: Former New York Times editorial board member; NYU Wagner visiting faculty
