The transatlantic relationship finds itself in a transformative moment. With Brexit, populist winds on both sides of the Atlantic, Putin's efforts to undermine European unity, and a U.S. president openly questioning the value of the transatlantic relationship and exacerbating trade tensions, the two sides of the Atlantic find themselves both distracted and divided. How will upcoming European elections and Brexit influence the relationship going forward? Is this moment any different from other transatlantic disagreements in the past? In what areas could the two sides of the Atlantic construct a positive and pragmatic agenda? These and other questions will be discussed during the interactive Lunch Talk with our special guests.
Registration for this event is closed.
