The US presidential election is fast approaching and the result could have wide-reaching consequences, not only for the citizens of the US but for all of us.  Topics relating to the future of climate change action, the international legal order, the promotion of international human rights, press freedom and indeed the future of truth and decency in public discourse are all on the table.

This week we speak to David Cole, the National Legal Director of the ACLU and the George Mitchell Professor of Law and Public Policy of Georgetown University in Washington. We avoid the temptation of focusing on the campaigns itself but on the implications of the election for the rule of law in the USA and in particular trying to make sense of the death of Ruth Bader Ginsburg and the appointment of Amy Coney Barrett to fill her place.
