The most hotly debated issue of the 2004 elections was U.S. foreign policy. The news media, political analysts, American voters, and countries around the world scrutinized the positions of the candidates to see how each would approach a cluster of particularly volatile issues, including the war in Iraq, North Korea, the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, and U.S.-European relations.

Two days after Election Day, a panel of Brookings experts will discuss what happened Tuesday and how the results could shape U.S. foreign policy in the near and long term. Scholars specializing in Europe, Asia, Russia, and the Middle East will also assess how the election played around the world, as well as how various regions could be affected by the outcome.
