2024 is not just an election year. It’s perhaps the election year. In 2024, more than half the world’s population will go to polls—4.2 billion citizens across approximately 65 countries. From Taiwan to Bangladesh, from the UK to India, from Pakistan to Russia, these national elections will prove consequential for years to come. Not to mention, the elephant in the room; the U.S. presidential race culminating in November. Join us for what promises to be a lively panel discussion
