Two days after the U.S. midterm elections, GCSP will explore transatlantic leadership and relations: have they reached a turning point and found possible ways forward?
The turbulent past 36 months have impacted the foundations of transatlantic relations. Is it possible that besides traditional channels and authorities, a new generation of leaders from both sides of the Atlantic can still tackle transnational issues through cooperative relations? On the U.S. side, who is most interested and able to lead in these new relations with Europe? How can Europe facilitate and lead in an increasingly productive and reciprocal manner?
The German Marshall Fund of the United States’ Director of Congressional Affairs and GCSP Associate Fellow Reta Jo Lewis will open the discussion by sharing her insights on the midterm elections and their implications for U.S. foreign policy and transatlantic relations. She will be joined by panelists Riccardo Alcaro, former coordinator of the EU Transworld project and Matthias Meyer, former Swiss WTO senior negotiator. With GCSP’s Geneva Leadership Alliance, they will discuss the latest developments and propose alternatives to navigate current crises.
