After the tumultuous and violent end to the Trump presidency, what has changed in America? Joe Biden stepped into the White House declaring that “America is back”. Facing a deeply divided nation and with an expansive agenda including taming coronavirus, reshaping the economic recovery, overhauling climate policy and re-thinking America’s relationship with the rest of the world, the new president has a daunting task on his hands. Joining us on stage to reflect on the first months of the Biden-Harris era are Leslie Vinjamuri, Director of the US and the Americas Programme at Chatham House, Times columnist Danny Finkelstein (Everything in Moderation) and the former US ambassador Matthew Barzun (The Power of Giving Away Power).
