On Tuesday, December 2, 2014, the German Marshall Fund of the United States (GMF) hosted David McAllister, member of European Parliament and chairman of the delegation for relations with the United States, for the fourth installment of its Transatlantic Talks to discuss the dynamics of EU-U.S. relations as both sides of the Atlantic adapt to the new political realities. Dr. Karen Donfried, president of GMF, launched the event by welcoming participants and providing a framework for the convening series, which pairs senior governmental officials from one side of the Atlantic with senior journalists from the other to discuss the most relevant issues in the transatlantic relationship. Molly McCluskey, a freelance foreign correspondent whose work has been featured in publications such as The Washington Post and National Geographic, moderated the event.
