Ivanka rules or withdrawal as a global strategy

The election [это про Трампа и его Иванку] also changed the world’s perception of the inner workings of America. It made explicit deep ideological and perceptual cleavages within the social body. It exposed the sclerotic condition of the two-party state. It demonstrated the fundamental ambivalence of the status of truth in the media environment, pointing to less than adequate tools of political analysis and sociological forecasting.
пусти-дунь Q в Европу

Вот последнее (выделено), имхо, очень/очень с порно. Если демократическая партия (и её эксперты) абмишурилась, то зачем же валить на политический анализ и прогноз. Равно как и по ту/сю сторону Атлантики: если ВЦИОМ Леваде врёт, то из этого же не следует..., или таки следует?

The first year of the Trump administration was characterized most fundamentally by the activation of the most parochial elements of American political life which in turn triggered effects abroad.

This conference [see below] aims to explore the geopolitical consequences and cultural repercussions of America’s new engagement with withdrawal as a global strategy. How have European and Eurasian relations with each other changed since the American revolution of November 2016? In particular, how have the internal implosions of the political mechanisms and institutions in the US influenced the perceptions of and actions in world politics in Europe and Eurasia. How do these implosions of what passed for normal in the US modify the current map of international relations? How does it change the views of the European and Russian political classes on the role of the EU and NATO in the near future? What are the alternative political configurations and arrangements that are being envisioned and discussed in Europe and Eurasia against the backdrop of Trump’s America?

Given the downward spiral of US-Russia relations, how is Russia’s presence in European relations understood and conceptualized by European and Eurasian elites and publics? Similarly, what are theroles that Europe is expected to play in Russia’s politics after the election of Donald Trump? In general, how does globalization look from the point of view of local actors in, say, Berlin, Rome, Tbilisi or Bishkek now, after the ostensible US disengagement from international institutions and networks?

We invite proposals from scholars of politics, social relations, history, culture, law, and media interested in analyzing changes of the political imaginaries in Europe and Eurasia after November 2016. We seek empirically grounded and theoretically informed accounts of cultural shifts, political and social transformations, as well as new conceptual frames that are emerging in “old” and “new” Europe, Russia, and Central Asia in response to the geopolitical challenges posed by the Trump administration.

By bringing scholars from different fields and different regions together, we hope to generate a productive discussion on the state of international relations across Europe and Eurasia against the backdrop of the revolutionary reconfiguration of the US’s role in the world.
