How Do We Contribute to the Transatlantic Relations?

We strongly believe that smart policies and a strong transatlantic bond can only exist if we unite a broad range of people behind it.

What we witness is that transatlantic topics or international affairs are often only discussed between a “foreign policy circle”. Other people rarely participate in these debates. This makes it so difficult to develop a narrative for the US-German and US-European partnership which assembles a wide majority behind it.

As such, we try to “break the bubble” and bring people from a wide spectrum of opinions, background, and foreign policy expertise together. To make our transatlantic relations work, we need a “Foreign Policy for All”. Transatlantic policies affect everyone. So everyone should be onboard.

Besides this inclusive character, we believe that it is necessary to communicate both our commonalities and differences between the USA, Germany, and Europe. Only with this honesty, we can move towards a sustainable, strategic cooperation in a transatlantic bond fit for the 21st century.

Our projects, events, target-groups, as well as our blog reflect this wide, open, and honest approach.

The uncertain future of Russia’s domestic politics

Something seems to be happening in Russian society. Despite the small size of protests compared to the whole of the population, their societal and political resonance has become stronger than before. Citizens appear to be more determined to protest. And it seems that only Putinʼs interventions can calm down those regularly erupting grievances.

EU Strategic Partnerships: A model for future EU-UK relations?

Assuming the UK and EU stick to their respective red lines on sovereignty and autonomy, a future security partnership is likely to be modeled technically on ones the EU already has. In this case, even an EU-UK security partnership unprecedented in ambition will fall well short of the cooperation reserved for EU members—at a time when that cooperation is becoming more consequential in the global arena.

Transnational Crime in North Africa

Over the past decade, the expanding threats from global jihadism and the sudden escalation of irregular migration in the Mediterranean have galvanized international attention and prompted prioritised support to the security infrastructure and border capacity of the states in the Maghreb. These actions, in response to the dominant threats of terrorists and migrants, have broadly been assumed to also cover the requirements of the region in terms of responding to the subsidiary, yet not inconsiderable, concern of organized crime.

Why Brexit is about security

Security does and will continue to play a role in the Brexit negotiations. The main risk is that an acrimonious divorce could sour discussions to develop a strong and comprehensive EU-UK security partnership. It is in both the British and the European interest that this does not occur.

Strategic autonomy and European security after Brexit

Although EU strategic autonomy and European strategic autonomy are different issues, one is likely the condition for the other, and vice versa. From outside the European Union, the United Kingdom would have a strong case to make that European strategic autonomy is a prerequisite of European security, and indeed a necessary precondition of EU strategic autonomy.

Britain and European Defence: New opportunities after Brexit?

Britain is leaving the EU just as the EU is getting serious about defence cooperation; indeed, the fact that it’s getting serious about defence cooperation is linked to the departure of Britain, which consistently opposed such steps. With the UK out of the picture, the remaining EU members can integrate their defence at liberty. That leaves the UK the sole outsider, a loser as European allies form the closer union that’s necessary in order to maximise the region’s collective might.
