“Between the faithful and unconditional promoters of free trade and the populist critiques defending protectionist and nationalist visions of the world, there is a critical political space for progressive forces to defend a regulated vision of globalization” (“For the many, not the few – A progressive model for trade and investment”, 2018).
During the past years, we have seen major challenges emerging on both sides of th Atlantic that are resetting the framework for European-U.S. relations.
