Re-wiring the US-EU relationship


A rejuvenation of transatlantic relations is a must in the current international climate, but any progress in this must be built on the basis of a more coordinated EU foreign policy and a restructured US-EU relationship, according to a new memo authored by Daniel Korski, Ulrike Guérot and Mark Leonard.

The memo argues that the once-in-blue-moon US-EU summits are not useful for policy-making, while the absence of a high-level US EU ambassador signifies how (un)seriously Washington takes Brussels. The EU has come of age and the US-EU link needs to be re-arranged accordingly.

The European Council on Foreign Relations does not take collective positions. ECFR publications only represent the views of its individual authors.
