The Transatlantic Divide: Myths, Realities, and Business as Usual


The first years of the twenty-first century have seen a growing strain

between the United States and Europe. While the fundamental integrity

of the transatlantic relationship appears intact, serious political, legal,

economic and security issues threaten to present critical challenges for

the future. These range from the conduct of business and trade to the

evolving role of security arrangements, to the impact of the emerging

global presence and influence of China and India. This session will identify

key issues that lie ahead for the transatlantic relationship and assess

current and potential strategies for addressing these challenges through

both official and non-official channels. Particular emphasis will be placed

on the practical realities of conducting business and political relations

between the two continents.
