Trump, Europe and the wider world

Joint event with Konrad-Adenauer-Foundation and Global Policy Institute

17th October 2017

At this seminar, our expert panel addressed the implications of Donald Trump’s Presidency for Europe’s role in the wider world. Traditionally the EU, and particularly Germany, has seen Europe’s global role as being exercised in close collaboration with the US.  Is such an attitude still desirable or even possible with the current US administration? Does Europe perhaps find itself today confronted by twin challenges to its West and to its East, from the US and Russia? If this is so, do these new challenges create opportunities as well as dangers?
