The United States and Europe are intrinsically linked by history, culture, and shared view of the world. However, the transatlantic Alliance is under pressure in both Europe and the United States. Increased protectionism, ideological differences, and a contradictory view of the world have put a strain on the once special relationship between Washington DC and Brussels.
The war in Ukraine has helped to highlight the importance of political and security cooperation between America and European Nations, however, more needs to be done to rebuild the Transatlantic bridge and prepare the alliance for the threats of the future. From cooperation on political projects like the Three Seas Initiative, to increasing energy exports to Europe to end dependence on Russia, there are numerous areas of mutually beneficial cooperation to grow.
