Political Studies Association Lecture a Debrief on US Election

November 3, 2020 1936
Pippa Norris

When will the United States, and frankly the world, be able to cast a dispassionate eye on the U.S. elections results and figure out what those results will mean going forward? Britain’s Political Studies Association, in its annual lecture, is placing a bet on November 25. That’s the day the PSA, in conjunction with SAGE Publishing, will present comparative political scientist Pippa Norris, founding director of the Electoral Integrity Project. Norris, the Paul F. McGuire Lecturer in Comparative Politics at Harvard University’s John F. Kennedy School of Government, will address “The 2020 US Elections and the Future of American Democracy.”

After Norris’ lecture, the event will move into a conversation between Norris and the BBC’s Huw Edwards. Online attendees will be able to submit questions during this conversation.

The event will take place via Zoom Webinar and is free to attend. Start time is 6:30 p.m. GMT/1:30 p.m. ET. The register for the lecture, click below:

Norris has taught at Harvard for more than a quarter century. In addition to her work for the Electoral Integrity Project, she is director of the Global Party Survey, co-director of the TrustGov Project and on the executive of the World Values Survey. Her publications include the 2019 book Electoral Integrity in America and the upcoming In Praise of Skepticism: Trust but Verify (for the ESRC-funded TrustGov project) and on Authoritarian Legitimacy

This year is the 70th anniversary of the Political Studies Association, a scholarly society which promotes and develops the study of politics in the United Kingdom and globally.

Sage, the parent of Social Science Space, is a global academic publisher of books, journals, and library resources with a growing range of technologies to enable discovery, access, and engagement. Believing that research and education are critical in shaping society, 24-year-old Sara Miller McCune founded Sage in 1965. Today, we are controlled by a group of trustees charged with maintaining our independence and mission indefinitely.
