McDaniel comments on politics of APEC conference

November 20, 2023

Associate Professor of Political Science Jason McDaniel’s recent media hits include an East Bay Times article from Nov. 12 about the Asia-Pacific Economic Corp. (APEC) conference that brought world leaders to San Francisco. 

He says President Biden’s presence at the conference provided an opportunity to demonstrate engagement with world leaders and push his agenda for reelection. 

“This is less responding to crises and more of a U.S. foreign policy that’s active rather than reactive,” McDaniel said. “That’s something President Biden will want to show.”
