Heather A. Conley, Senior Vice President for Europe, Eurasia, and the Arctic & Director of the Europe Program; Center for Strategic & International Studies (CSIS), and Thomas Silberhorn, Parliamentary State Secretary, German Federal Ministry of Defence; Member of Bundestag (CSU), will discuss the future of transatlantic security and NATO.
The discussion will be moderated by Andrea Rotter, Head of Division Foreign and Security Policy; Hanns Seidel Foundation.
Long cherished as cornerstone of the post-war international order, the transatlantic security architecture has come under intense scrutiny and pressure. NATO is confronted with a variety of complex security challenges, all of which require close transatlantic cooperation. While President Trump regularily points out European omissions with regard to military spending and capability gaps, his distinctive style eroded the trust of U.S. allies in America as a reliable partner. Moving forward, the world is eager to hear from the new President-elect – what can we expect from the incoming Biden administration in terms of foreign policy? How can the U.S. and its allies safeguard transatlantic security cooperation? And what should Europeans be prepared to bring to the table?
This is the 7th session of our virtual event series Road to Election Night & Beyond, which is organized and hosted in cooperation with leading transatlantic institutions and political foundations.
