    POLITICAL MATTERS: A CONVERSATION WITH MITCHELL COHEN

    Join us for a conversation with Mitchell Cohen, an internationally-known political analyst, essayist and critic. From 1991 to 2009, he was co-editor of Dissent, one of the United States' leading progressive quarterlies. He is professor of political science at Baruch College of the City University of New York and the CUNY Graduate Center. 

    Mitchell Cohen will join Democrats Abroad France for drinks and an informal conversation about the current US political situation, the Democratic Party, its strengths and weaknesses, our prospects for the 2022 midterm elections, and the dramatic challenges we are now facing – challenges made worse by the 4-year tenure of Donald Trump. 

    This event will take place in person in central Paris. Details will be sent by email after you RSVP.
