IE and Harvard: Building bridges between Europe and the United States

There's a crisis in the transatlantic, and that’s why more than ever we need to build stronger bridges. On Wednesday April 24th, Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government launched its Project on Europe and the Transatlantic Relationship

On Wednesday April 24th, Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government launched its Project on Europe and the Transatlantic Relationship. This project has partnered with IE’s own Transatlantic Relations Initiative to address some of the biggest challenges our world faces. The European-American relationship has been the cornerstone of the international liberal order built since the end the Second World War. The fundamental pillars of that order – liberal democracy, human rights, open markets, and a rules-based international system – are, however, today more questioned than ever. The threats to the liberal architecture come not just from without but also from within. Indeed, democracy is under threat not just from exogenous attacks but also from growing disillusionment within our own societies. The benefits of free trade, open markets and globalisation are contested by groups of citizens in Europe and America that have seen their economic prospects stagnate or worsen over the last three decades. The ultimate result of these trends is a sense of drift and fracture that calls into question the entire edifice.
