Are geopolitics worse in our time than in previous times? It certainly feels to many that this is the case and that things are getting more fragmented, partisan, elitist and founded on illusion than before. The relationship between power and its inequities and the hope of democracy is fraught with difficulties and anxieties. This conference brings together two important strands of the evolving relationship between Jungian ideas and political and social issues. First, the C.G. Jung Institute of San Francisco has presented conferences on the Presidency every four years since 2000 at the time of national elections. The 2020 conference will be held just a few weeks before the election. The second project is the groundbreaking series of Analysis and Activism conferences organized with the support of the International Association for Analytical Psychology. This conference will be the fourth of its kind, following previous events in London, Rome, and Prague.
