The November 2016 election of the populist Donald Trump to the White House shows how necessary a work of monitoring and analysis of the changing American political landscape has become – especially since the victory of this political outlier dovetails with similar evolutions in Europe and the rest of the world.

Founded in 2000, IFRI's United States Program tries to understand American culture and politics from the inside. Furthermore, it studies the evolutions of the country’s foreign and defense policies. It lastly actively contributes to maintaining close trans-Atlantic ties, producing and broadcasting research on the United States in France and Europe while also regularly welcoming U.S. academics and officials to Paris.

Fed by field missions as well as a large network of journalists, business people, diplomats, academics and researchers from American think tanks, the program's analyzes are offered in two formats: the Potomac Papers, which are about 30 pages long notes that feature our latest research activities, and the Chroniques Américaines, which covers the country's social and political current events.The program also organizes research seminars and, since 2000, a major annual conference every December. In order to inform the largest audience possible, our experts regularly intervene in the media, both in the press and audiovisual sector. Our researchers also contribute to Ifri's main publications, the RAMSES and Politique étrangère.
