Economically, culturally and politically America is a global reference point, and the outcomes of its elections reverberate across the world. What are the consequences of such a bitterly fought battle, and what will the next four years hold for America’s relationship with the rest of the world on crucial issues like the recovery from Covid-19, trade and climate change.

To begin to unpick the election and look forward, KBS Executive Dean, Professor Stephen Bach is joined in conversation by John Rentoul, Chief Political Correspondent of the Independent and Professor Rosie Campbell of King’s College London.


John Rentoul is The Independent’s chief political commentator, having worked for the title since 1995. He is also visiting professor at King’s College London, and a prominent tweeter. He is the author of a biography of Tony Blair and, with Jon Davis, of Heroes or Villains? The Blair Government Reconsidered. As well as writing about politics, he contributes a weekly top 10 of curiosities and Mea Culpa, a column about style and usage.

Professor Rosie Campbell is professor of politics and director of the Global Institute for Women’s Leadership at King’s College London. She held positions at Birkbeck and UCL before joining King’s in 2018.

She has recently written on barriers to participation in politics, gendered patterns of support for the populist radical right and what voters want from their elected representatives. Her publications cover the subjects of voting behaviour, public opinion, the politics of diversity and political recruitment. She is the principle investigator of the ESRC funded Representative Audit of Britain, which surveyed all candidates standing in the 2015, 2017 and 2019 British General Elections.
