Join the Paul Simon Public Policy Institute for a conversation with Rahm Emanuel, former mayor of the City of Chicago, and Institute Director John Shaw as they discuss the growing importance of global cities, like Chicago, and how they are being affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. The conversation will focus on the increasingly vital role played by mayors in American public life as they advance innovative policies at a time when Washington is frequently stalemated.
Emanuel is former mayor of the City of Chicago, serving two terms from 2011-2019. He previously served as President Barack Obama’s chief of staff, President Bill Clinton’s senior adviser, and is a three-term congressman representing Illinois’ 5th congressional district. He is the author of "The Nation City: Why Mayors Are Now Running the World." Emanuel is also a contributor for ABC News.
This program is part of a virtual series of conversations sponsored by the Paul Simon Public Policy Institute with distinguished experts, political analysts, and government leaders discussing how the COVID-19 pandemic is reshaping our world.
