State of the Unions. FEPS GMF Annual Conference

Overcoming transatlantic divergence after the US midterm elections 

Following the U.S midterm election, the Foundation for European Progressive Studies and the German Marshall Fund will bring together leading European and U.S. experts and policy-makers to analyse the U.S. and the E.U. domestic political realities and their impact on foreign policy. Specifically, these conversations will explore the challenges facing the transatlantic relationship at a critical time for both our Unions. While overcoming transatlantic divergence seems daunting in the current context, understanding the drivers of U.S. and E.U. foreign policy – particularly for the remaining two years of the Trump Administration’s first term – will illuminate key conversations. Moreover, they will reveal ways to begin tackling challenges on both sides of the Atlantic – as well as coming up with concrete solutions and policy recommendations.
