As part of the Atlantic Council’s Elections 2020 programming, the New Atlanticist will feature a series of pieces looking at the major questions facing the United States around the world as Americans head to the polls.
Rapid developments in technology impact social, political, and economic issues both locally and globally. As the US presidential election nears, it is critical for Americans to consider the ways technology can both provide solutions and create challenges in the future.

1. What future does the US want for data and how we ensure data benefits both individuals & communities?
2. What future does the US want for data, trust, and increasing resilience across communities and sectors?
3. What future does the US want for data and the future of work in our country?
4. What future does the US want addressing COVID-19 and future outbreaks with better tech?
