Speaker(s):
  • Franziska Brantner, Green Party, Member of the German Bundestag

In recent years, the institutions and norms that underpinned international order and cooperation since World War II have been under assault. Most notably, U.S. President Donald Trump’s destructive rhetoric and actions have deeply unsettled traditional U.S. allies. The upcoming elections in the United States will therefore point the way not only for the country itself but also for the future of transatlantic relations and international cooperation as a whole. 

This event aims to address the following questions: Should Donald Trump win a second term, would transatlantic relations and multilateral institutions suffer harm from which they could not recover? Can Europe take a deep breath should Joe Biden become the new president? What will the new administration expect from Europe? What implications will the next administration have for Asia and Europe's near abroad?


Further information will follow soon.
