Resilience in a Changing World: The Transatlantic Relationship Going Forward
Internal and external forces in Europe and the United States are reshaping the transatlantic relationship, presenting a variety of challenges and opportunities. Analyzing these trends is crucial to understanding and shaping the transatlantic relationship going forward. The 2017 Transatlantic Policy Symposium (TAPS) at Georgetown University will bring together established experts in the transatlantic community with an upcoming generation of thinkers to discuss these and related topics.  We are seeking papers that address the forces affecting the future of the transatlantic relationship.
Potential topics may include:
  • How do the financial crisis, trade issues, and the institutional challenges of Brexit threaten economic cooperation between the United States and the European Union?
  • In what ways do new security challenges to Europe, such as a resurgent Russia and threats from terrorism, affect transatlantic cooperation on security policy?
  • How can the United States and Europe work together to solve crises outside of their respective borders, such as in Syria?
  • How are European and American perceptions of each other changing?
Rolling Deadline: Review and selection will begin December 5, but papers will be accepted until December 26 at 5 p.m. EST.
