As Europe and the EU continue to face internal and external policy challenges, the traditional transatlantic space has developed and expanded into a wider Atlantic space. The Atlantic Future project aims to provide some new perspectives on the Atlantic space as well as present some of the key policy issues indicated in the project that affect Europe and the EU.
The aim of the Atlantic Future is to study the rationales of cooperation in the Atlantic area and to suggest strategies to the EU on how to engage with the wider transatlantic relationship, in the context of the ongoing redistribution of power and the overall rebalancing of relations around and within the Atlantic space.
The conversation aims to explore what economic and geostrategic implications the energy revolution in the Atlantic entail for regional integration, and what kind of regional cooperation could be pursued in order to tackle international security challenges. We will examine whether the proliferation of trade agreements in the Atlantic act as “barriers” or “building blocks” for new models of governance in the region and finally what should the role of the European Union in the Atlantic region be.
Please join us for what promises to be an engaging discussion.
