Watch Event Video

Attention will soon shift from a fiercely battled 2016 primary season to the presidential nominating conventions in Cleveland and Philadelphia and this fall's general election. From domestic policy to national security, from the state of the economy to law and order issues, from education to energy, health care and beyond, The Atlantic honed in on issues that matter to voters. Through a series of policy briefings, forums, interviews and conversations in the convention cities, we explored how the candidates will shape policy and craft their blueprint for America's future.
