This project explores the transatlantic alliance between the US and Europe and whether perceived policy divergence or convergence between the two sides is long-term and structural, or cyclical.
The transatlantic alliance between the United States and Europe has been a cornerstone of global politics for over 70 years. However, increasingly complex and new global trends have put the relationship under stress.
This project explores the nature of this ongoing relationship and whether perceived policy divergence or convergence between the US and Europe is long-term and structural, or cyclical.
Through scenario workshops, background research, case studies and interviews, we examine the strength of the alliance moving forward and consider possible pressure points, with the findings published in a number of short papers and a final report.
This project is supported by the Smith Richardson Foundation.
