EU-US Relationship – What’s Next?
Over the last few years, discussions on the future of the EU-US relationship have become increasingly important. Even though a new administration has taken over some questions have lingered. Where does the EU-US relationship stand? Can we say that there is a unilateral understanding within the US towards its allies in the EU? Can we identify a lack of common understanding between Europeans and Americans? How was Borrell’s visit to Russia perceived across the Atlantic? Does the wish for strategic autonomy influence EU-US relations in the same way as “America First”? How independent can the EU really be whilst involved with the US? Can the EU viably look at military autonomy as an option? These are just a few of the questions that are addressed in this interview.
In this interview, Stanley Sloan, one of America’s top experts on EU-US relations, the founding Director of the Atlantic Community Initiative and Anna Ūdre, Journalist and Foreign News Editor at Latvian Television seek answers to answer these challenging questions.
