Multiple Challenges for Transatlantic Partnerships
The conference will be focus primarily on the economic, political, and security aspects of relations between traditional partners on both sides of the Atlantic. The aim of the conference is to find new ways to strengthen mutual relations.
The world economy has experienced its most substantial contraction in decades, and continuous waves of lockdowns have given little opportunity for recovery. In addition to the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, Transatlantic relations have been strained by Donald Trump’s disengagement policy, the repercussions of Brexit, and incompatible approaches towards China. President Biden will need to resolve the country’s domestic turmoil before his administration can confidently turn its attention to salvaging external relations. However, President Biden has already demonstrated his desire to bring America back into the international realm with extensive reengagement plans. COVID-19 responses have predominated the world’s security concerns. Border control, rapid testing, vaccine distribution, and the detection of new strains remain a priority for most countries. To form a resilient partnership, the US and the EU must create mutually agreed-upon engagement strategies and political policies.

Event reportThe Multiple Challenges for Transatlantic Partnerships conference was held – hopefully – at the beginning of the end of the global pandemic. With the vaccination process in full flow, both sides of the Atlantic look for ways how to re-boost the economy, old alliances are being renewed and new cooperations are about to take place. The transatlantic relationship is once again emphasized. As Daniel Kaddik, the Executive Director of the European Liberal Forum, concluded: “We need to transform the current transatlantic bridge into a transatlantic highway.” As traditionally, the conference was divided into three panels in order to comprehensively cover the three critical dimensions of the transatlantic partnership: economic, political, and security.
