About This Event

In recent years, the transatlantic relationship has evolved significantly. Historically, the US and Germany have maintained robust cooperation on a wide variety of fronts related to security, trade, and technology. Yet these areas now feature prominently among some of the current challenges at the center of the broader transatlantic relationship. How can Germany and the US work together to address some of the key challenges presently facing the transatlantic relationship? And how does public opinion shape the decisions policymakers are making in Berlin and Washington?
