America First: Does the Atlantic Partnership Have a Future?

16 May 2018 - 5:00pm to 6:00pm

Chatham House, London


Dr Charlie Kupchan, Senior Fellow, Council on Foreign Relations; Professor of International Affairs, School of Foreign Service and Department of Government, Georgetown University
Chair: Dr Leslie Vinjamuri, Director, Centre on Conflict, Rights and Justice and Associate Professor of International Relations, SOAS, University of London; Associate Fellow, US and the Americas Programme and Member of the Council, Chatham House



Taken together, Trump’s ‘America First’ approach to foreign policy and unprecedented populist challenges to European solidarity may well represent a historical turning point for the West. Dr Kupchan will assess the causes and consequences of this inflection point, and assess how best to manage Atlantic cooperation moving forward. 

Attendance at this event is by invitation only.
