Abstract

Ties between the US and the EU rival those between any other pair of international actors. After all, no other regions of the world are as closely connected in economics, security and politics’ as Europe and the US. As the EU confronts multiple and overlapping crises, while the US has just elected a president questioning the very foundations of the 'western liberal order', we ask if and if so how US-EU relations are imperiled by crises in the EU? The panel contributors will examine the ways in which these crises have strengthened or weakened the transatlantic relationship across a variety of different cases. We are interested in how, if in any way, external geopolitical events and crisis have had an impact on US-EU relations more broadly as well as the level of cohesion among EU member states engaged in US-EU relations. Although having foremost a European focus, we also seek to tease out some hypotheses about the recent US election's effect on transatlantic relations more broadly.
