A Transatlantic Strategy for 2020: The Political Dimension
Dr Robin Niblett CMG, Director, Chatham House
Chair: Xenia Wickett, Head, US and the Americas Programme and Dean, Queen Elizabeth II Academy for Leadership in International Affairs, Chatham House
The transatlantic partnership has provided the backbone to the liberal international order ever since the end of the Second World War. The tumultuous political events of 2016 denote a brutal rupture from the dominant global position of the transatlantic partnership and threaten to undermine the partnership itself. Only by understanding that the current problems facing the transatlantic relationship have deep structural roots will it be possible to find ways to prevent further erosion, sustain the benefits of the existing partnership and build opportunities for transatlantic cooperation in the future.
Ahead of the publication of his new paper, Robin Niblett, will join us to share his thoughts on the challenges, opportunities and potential strategies towards securing the future of the transatlantic relationship.
Attendance at this event is by invitation only.
