Reinventing Leadership in the Transatlantic Relationship
Sponsored by:

The newly inaugurated U.S. President Joe Biden is expected to reinvent the transatlantic relationship early in his presidency, markedly shifting the relationship established by the previous administration. What will an invigorated alliance look like? What are the specific challenges and opportunities that Russia poses to this alliance? How can the United States navigate these shoals in a manner that can reinvigorate U.S.-EU partnership?

Join us for a program featuring Sam Nunn, James F. Collins, Federica Mogherini, and Alasdair Young on the future of transatlantic relations.

CoE: Creating Europe Through Crises
Sponsored by:
European Studies Center

The ESC’s 2020-21 theme, Creating Europe, explores both the political, social, cultural, and geographical forces that have given shape to contemporary Europe and also individuals who create and are creative in their daily or artistic expressions of what it means to be European.

For this first installment, the ESC and the European Union Studies Association (EUSA) will collaborate to explore how several crises – including financial, Brexit, migration, democratic backsliding, and public
health – have shaped the European Union over
the past decade.

Audience participation is encouraged.

Panelists:
Catherine De Vries, Bocconi University, Milan
Sara Goodman, Graduate Institute of International and Development Studies, Geneva
