Transatlantic Relations

The end of the Cold War also did away with a state of affairs under which the transatlantic alliance was taken for granted. Back then, it was basically a security alliance institutionally anchored in NATO. How much weight will the often invoked community of values between Europe and the US be able to sustain? What shared interests will connect us in the future? Will a world, in which economic and political leverage is shifting rapidly, require more or less transatlantic commonalities? The Foundation makes every effort to promote transatlantic dialogue in the areas of foreign and security policy, energy and climate policy, green economy, and democracy.
