EUCROSS Webinar: Transatlantic Relations in Times of Contestation and Global (Dis)order

In cooperation with American University (Washington, DC) and the Transatlantic Policy Center at American University

 February 13 2020 - 15:00 - 16:00 CET

By no means can all the fractures that appear to garner headlines in the transatlantic relationship be situated neatly across issues areas or even across current divergent approaches to multilateralism and the global liberal order. Some of the issues are symbolic, others are more pressing in terms of the geopolitical implications of transatlantic rupture given the enormous political, economic, and social turmoil that will continue to confront decision makers. Current discussions focus on maintaining an Alliance on trade and security in the face of disruptions and threats to the liberal order. What is missing in broader discussions is an assessment of types of specific European strategies and options rather than speeches praising the substance and decrying the rhetoric of US policies. To what extent is Europe providing leadership in shaping global governance or working with other democratic powers to promote initiatives that supposedly underpin the liberal international order? To what extent will the EU engage with those that wish to reform the liberal order? What are the prospects of global (dis)order of the transatlantic relationship unravels further? What is the impact on the US of challenges to the liberal order?
