Cooperation between the United States and Europe is integral to maintaining transatlantic security and addressing tension and conflict worldwide. After World War II, the Marshall Plan rebuilt European economies within a cooperative framework specifically designed to eliminate drivers of future conflict. The transatlantic security partnership established in that era has underpinned the spread of peace and prosperity since.

Transatlantic cooperation is essential to understanding and meeting the challenges presented by today’s security landscape.
