Transatlantic Trends 2020
French, German, and American perspectives align and diverge in unexpected ways, according to new transatlantic opinion research. France is increasingly skeptical of international engagement, Germany is increasingly open to involving itself in foreign affairs, and China’s influence on the world stage is rapidly mounting in the wake of the coronavirus crisis. Do Europe and the United States still have the common ground to forge a shared agenda on security, digital, and international trade issues?
The results, collected in part before and after the coronavirus crisis, reveal the impact of this pandemic on public opinion.
Please join to discover and discuss the results of this publication at a launch webinar that will be simultaneously broadcasted on the German Marshall Fund’s YouTube channel, and shared across our Twitter account @gmfus and that of our partners @i_montaigneEN and @BertelsmannFdn.
