Trump, Putin and Traditional Values

Trump, Putin, and Traditional Values

Wednesday, November 1 | 6 p.m. | McNally Amphitheatre | Fordham University Lincoln Center Campus

American Evangelical and Russian actors—both from the Kremlin and the Russian Orthodox Church—are forming alliances to support “traditional values” against "political liberalism," and each for their own purposes:  American Evangelicals are attempting to influence the political and cultural landscape of the US; the Russians are forging a new East-West cultural cold war. This panel session will explore the political, social, and religious dimensions of this new alliance that has geo-political implications.

Moderated by Mark Movsesian, St. John's University Law School

Panelists include:
(1) Shaun Casey, Georgetown University, former head of Religion and Global Affairs Office of US State Department
(2) Nikolas Gvosdev, United States Naval Academy
(3) Kristina Stoeckl, University of Innsbruck
(4) Peter Wehner, Ethics and Public Policy Center, former White House staff under Presidents Ronald Reagan, George H. W. Bush, and George W. Bush
