U.S.- EU relations and the November 2020 elections Les Jeudis de l'Ifri

A "Les Jeudis de l'Ifri" videoconference around Charles P. RIES, vice-president, International at Rand Corporation. 

U.S.-EU relations are at a low ebb. What should we expect for transatlantic relations after the U.S. presidential election in November 2020? What will be the priorities with Europe of another Trump administration or a Biden administration? What may be the likely effects of the coronavirus crisis and Brexit on the issues and the context? Can trade disputes be attenuated or avoided in the context of recession? What is the future for transatlantic defense and security cooperation?


Distinguished by various national awards and decorations and member of the American Academy of Diplomacy, Ambassador Charles Ries notably served as the Ambassador of the United States in Greece and held several positions in Iraq, European affairs and Great Britain . At Rand Corporation, his research specializes in development economics, the economic effects of Brexit, the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and American national security.


This debate is for corporate members only.
