The future contours of U.S.'s domestic politics and foreign policy priorities in the wake of the U.S. elections, and the reshaping of the U.S. cooperation with France, Germany and the UK, will be under high scrutiny, especially after the surprise victory of president-elect Donald J. Trump.
Recent political, economic and military developments in Europe have already reshuffled the way Washington is interacting with each of the European "Big 3", and the Brexit referendum has further questioned the concept of Special Relationship in transatlantic relations.
As the next U.S. administration's commitment to European security might be in jeopardy in light of Donald Trump's campaign proposals, it is paramount to discuss and address the implications of the growing compartmentalization of what has been Obama's recent strategic cooperation with France, UK and Germany.
Looking at the articulation of a new balance of power in Europe and the strategic priorities of the incoming Trump's administration, the three speakers will provide complementary perspectives and analyses on the redefinition of the transatlantic partnership.
