Next event: Transatlantic Relations in troubled waters, the aftermath of the US Elections
The US has historically been the EU’s closest ally, with common interests and values as well as a shared view of the world guiding bilateral relations and joint actions. Yet, following the election of President Donald Trump, divergences in several areas have led to doubts about the durability of transatlantic relations. The implementation of the American foreign policy has resulted in US criticism of, and withdrawal from, several multilateral initiatives, and is recalibrating the US’s relations with traditional allies, including the EU. Major areas of tension in bilateral relations have included the Iran nuclear deal, trade, burden-sharing within the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO), and differing perceptions of the multilateral order. And, what will be the future for Transatlantic Relations under the Biden administration?
To give you an outlook of the subject we have the honour to present you Fraser Cameron (Director of the EU-Asia Centre, Senior Advisor at the European Policy Centre, and an adjunct professor at the Hertie School of Governance in Berlin) and WEINIAN HU (a research fellow in the Regulatory Policy unit at CEPS) as the speakers of this webinar, which will be held on Zoom on November 25th at 6PM.
