Weathering the storm: transatlantic security in insecure times

On 3 October 2018, the EU Institute for Security Studies (EUISS), the Netherlands Institute of International Relations (Clingendael Institute) and the Center for a New American Security (CNAS) organised a roundtable with the purpose of shedding light on recent developments in European and global security and their impact on transatlantic relations.

Four panels focussed on the relaunching of European Union defence and its (mis)interpretation on the other side of the Atlantic, Europe’s contribution to burden sharing beyond military spending, the EU’s potential role in US-North Korea denuclearisation negotiations and Turkey’s posture in NATO.

The meeting offered the opportunity for policymakers, think tankers and journalists to share thoughts on the future direction of Europe and the transatlantic relationship, and exchange ideas on the challenges ahead and potential areas of cooperation for the safeguarding of the international rules-based order.
