BACKGROUND

In the wake of the UK’s vote to leave the European Union and the surprise victory of Donald Trump in the US Presidential election, new questions are being raised about the future of the transatlantic alliance. What is to become of longstanding institutions, such as NATO? How would European integration be affected by an unprecedented lack of support from the American administration? What will be the shape of trade relations going forward, with or without TTIP? Will governments have a united approach on external challenges, such as relations with Russia? Our panel will consider these and other questions facing both sides of the Atlantic.
