Abstract

The US-led international order is in decline. The declining of great powers proved to be as disruptive as emerging powers. Great power re-organization and the ensuing chaos and uncertainty triggered important processes of adaptation and policy change in the transatlantic space and beyond. The objective of this Panel is to explain the implications of the relaunch of European defence integration from a policy change and strategic perspective. Complementing grand theories of international relations and European integration, it proposes new conceptual framework of analysis, such as the multiple streams framework. Second, the Panel studies basic disagreements or tensions between the US and the EU, assessing their consequences for the transatlantic relationship and re-shaping of the liberal world order. To this end, it also looks at the patterns and drivers of U.S. troops deployment in Europe between 2016–2020. Third, the papers in this Panel scrutinizes how can the EU adapt to the new world order shaped by the US-China clash, gauging the effects of an ‘in-between, neutral position’. Finally, the Panel critically discusses the distribution of defense industries across Europe and the politics of burden sharing in the transatlantic security community, which is argued to be central to the defense of the liberal international order.
