Transatlantic Security: A New Hope?
Zeit & Ort
Über die Veranstaltung
According to EU Commission President Dr. Ursula von der Leyen, Europe now has “a friend in the White House”. While many Europeans will share this sentiment, existing transatlantic security issues remain yet to be solved: on questions of NATO burden sharing (the infamous “2 %”), energy security (Nord Stream II), cyber security (Huawei), and possible troop movements within Europe, US President Joe Biden will without a doubt change the rhetoric, but not necessarily the entire substance of the conversation. In parallel, French advances at European strategic autonomy grow stronger beyond its national borders and may offer an alternative to the crumbling post-World War II order.
Against this background, an international round of transatlantic experts will discuss past, current, and future challenges – and opportunities – for transatlantic security.
