The Redefinition of the Transatlantic Partnership

Traditionally, the dominant agenda in transatlantic relations has been military security governed by the US and its nuclear preponderance. The “balance of threat” resulted in the primacy of the military sphere over the economic sphere. Since 1985 the US-EU agenda has changed fundamentally due to the disappearance of the Soviet- American security agenda, structural developments in the world economy, and the attempt on both sides to re-examine their respective roles in the international system with respect to the economic and security spheres.

Transatlantic economic integration. Partnership or rivalry between the US and Europe?

Transatlantic interdependence and shared responsibility for global leadership have now grown so much that the EU and the US need to come up not only with a new strategy and institutional capacity to manage bilateral relations, but also with a blueprint for dealing with global economic issues. The scenarios for the further development of transatlantic relations are varied: pessimistic and optimistic.
