Caught in the Crossfire: Balancing EU relations with the U.S. and China

Hudson Institute will host a discussion on the future of the European Union’s relationship with the U.S. and China. The European Union is increasingly facing challenges from both within and without. Complications from Brexit, growing populism, and migration have tested the strength of the European Union. Meanwhile, the U.S. has opened trade disputes with the EU, taken steps to withdraw from the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty, and raised concerns regarding Europe’s financial commitment to NATO. And as mounting tensions test the resolve of European politics and EU alliances, Beijing continues to expand its presence in the region through its Belt and Road Initiative and proposed high-tech partnerships.

Panelists will include Jeppe Tranholm-Mikkelsen, secretary-general of the European Council of Ministers; Ashley Tellis, senior fellow and Tata Chair at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace; Randall Schriver, Assistant Secretary of Defense for Indo-Pacific Security Affairs; and Hudson Institute Senior Fellows Thomas J. Duesterberg and Liselotte Odgaard. Hudson President and CEO KenWeinstein will introduce the panelists.
