  • Julia Bryan, Co-Chair, Democrats Abroad

  • Danielle Piatkiewicz, Research Fellow, EUROPEUM

The discussion will be moderated by Christian Kvorning Lassen - Deputy Director, EUROPEUM 


For the past four years, Transatlantic relations has frayed and deteriorated amidst diverging approaches to international challenges; the US has pulled out of the Paris Agreement on climate, withdrawn from the Open Skies Treaty as well as the INF, all agreements deemed important to the EU and Central and Eastern Europe. These divergences may be emblematic of a deeper Transatlantic divide with regards to both multilateralism and governance, making the US elections an important junction from a European perspective; will they lead to further regression of the Transatlantic relationship, a renewal of past cooperation, or a complete reorientation from which a new Transatlantic relationship can evolve? The outcome of the US elections will heavily impact the future of the Transatlantic relationship including the Central and Eastern European region – our debate will analyze and discuss the impacts of the election on Transatlantic relations and what they might portend for multilateralism and key European policy issues.

The event will be live-streamed online on EUROPEUM Institute for European Policy Facebook page and the audience will be able to ask questions via comments under the live video.
