This seminar took place during Barack Obama’s first official visit to Europe, after the G20 London summit, the NATO Strasbourg/Kehl summit, the EU-US meeting including the President’s address on nuclear disarmament in Prague and on the day of Obama’s visit to Turkey. Consequently, the bulk of discussions focused on the transatlantic agenda and on the question of what change we can expect in transatlantic relations following the election of Barack Obama? The seminar also addressed the policies in Afghanistan, the Middle East Peace Process and the question of EU-US relations.
