Safeguarding Transatlantic Security: A “New Deal” in Euro-American Relations?
Long cherished as a cornerstone of the post-war international order, the transatlantic security architecture has come under intense scrutiny and pressure. NATO is confronted with a variety of complex security challenges, all of which require close transatlantic cooperation. While President Trump regularly points out European shortcomings with regard to military spending and capability gaps, his distinctive style has eroded the trust of U.S. allies in America as a reliable partner.
Moving forward, the world is eager to hear from the President-elect: What can we expect from the incoming Biden administration in terms of foreign policy? How can the U.S. and its allies safeguard transatlantic security cooperation? And what should Europeans be prepared to bring to the table?
