About the lecture:
Are these two pillars of American toward Europe policy compatible today? Do European political institutions too often prioritize independence from Washington over cooperation? Can the Euro survive without weakening both European democracy and prosperity? Have American efforts to outsource the defense of some U.S. interests to less capable European partners resulted in those interests being neglected? Dr. Bromund will discuss these and other questions, and contends that the time has come for the United States to replace its two-pillar approach with a new policy towards Europe.
