Constanze Stelzenmüller, Robert Bosch Senior Fellow in the Center on the United States and Europe, The Brookings Institution gives her opinion on transatlantic relations.
In her address, Dr Stelzenmüller discussed the implications of the Trump administration‘s geopolitical approach for Europe and Germany’s future relationship with the US. President Trump’s inconsistent statements and criticisms regarding the European Union come at a time when the United Kingdom, the United States’ closest ally within the EU-28, is preparing for negotiations for withdrawal from the EU, which has led to more vocal calls for Germany to become more actively involved in shaping the future of transatlantic relations.
Constanze Stelzenmüller on the Trump-Putin meeting and NATO summit:
"After one of the most cringe-worthy press conferences ever held by an American president (preceded by a shock-and-awe tour of Europe), it’s worth focusing on some essentials.
"To discuss challenges to and opportunities for NATO as it enters its eighth decade, this episode features a discussion among a group of leading Brookings experts: John Allen, president of the Brookings Institution; Constanze Stelzenmüller, the Robert Bosch Senior Fellow in the Center on the United States and Europe at Brookings; and Michael O’Hanlon, a senior fellow and director of research in the Foreign Policy Program at Brookings."
