Donald Trump's victory in the US has the potential to upend transatlantic relations as they have existed for the last seven decades and since the end of the Cold War. Although there are still more unknowns than knowns as to what his precise foreign policy choices will be, democratic European leaders have been rattled by his campaign statements, in particular his views about alliance commitments. This is being closely followed by Russia who has applauded Trump's success and has openly expressed hopes of capitalising on it.
Together with our Richard von Weizsäcker Fellow Natalie Nougayrède we will spend an interactive Lunch Talk discussing possible consequences for Europe's security architecture as well as its domestic politics. Might a Yalta 2.0 - an idea seemingly entertained in Moscow - now become possible? And to what degree will the question of upholding liberal values within the transatlantic community weigh on this new era as it unfolds?

Natalie Nougayrède is a French journalist. She currently works as editorial board member and columnist at ‘The Guardian’, which she joined in October 2014. She was previously the executive editor of ‘Le Monde’, after being its diplomatic correspondent and Moscow bureau chief. She writes about international and European affairs, with a special focus on security issues and human rights. Nougayrède was awarded two French journalism prizes, the ‘Prix de la Presse Diplomatique’ (2004), and the ‘Albert Londres Prize’ (2005), for her coverage of Russia and the Chechnya war. Furthermore, she has contributed to books on Vladimir Putin's Russia and on the Russian journalist Anna Politkovskaya who was murdered in 2006.
