The United States and European Union have both embraced the objectives of strengthening collaboration and transatlantic relations and building stronger democratic societies and deeper political, economic, trade, security, health, and development cooperation. The stakes are high for the upcoming U.S.-EU Summit on June 15, and both Washington and Brussels have identified a new opportunity in relations to build and address multiple challenges facing both sides of the Atlantic and globally, including climate change, COVID-19, and growing authoritarian threats from China and Russia that are in conflict with U.S., EU, and transatlantic interests. How do leaders in Brussels and Washington plan to carry out this ambitious agenda? Join us for a timely conversation and preview of U.S.-EU Summit priorities and perspectives from Brussels and Washington.
