After Obama: The Transatlantic Relationship

Tuesday, May 10, 2016 - 5:30pm

2016 may have massive ramifications for the transatlantic alliance. Quarrels about how to handle challenges from Russia and the Middle East, along with broader issues around counterterrorism and trade policy, have led to questions about the underlying stability of European-American relationships. Meanwhile, rising nationalism and populism on both sides threaten to drive a wedge into the European political project and to upend long-standing American foreign policy priorities. Are these issues symptomatic of a broader breach in transatlantic relations, or do they simply reflect a rocky phase in an otherwise durable alliance?

About World Policy Institute

A center for global thought leadership, the World Policy Institute is uniquely focused on the crucial but neglected challenges and opportunities of an increasingly interconnected world. We stress innovative, transformative thinking; diversity of ideas; and a global perspective. World Policy Journal, fellows, events, and policy projects provide channels for supporters, thought leaders, decision makers, experts, and citizens to identify, debate, and develop constructive solutions.

This event is part of our new World Policy Security Series, led by WPI fellow Dr. Jonathan Cristol. These near-monthly roundtables will focus on a wide range of themes in international security and be responsive to events in the news. The private, off-the-record discussions will bring in security experts and analysts from academia, the private sector, and government (U.S. and non-U.S.) for clear, nuanced briefings that take you beyond the jargon and behind the headlines. Seating is limited to ensure access and participation.
