“TRANSATLANTIC RELATIONS 2.0”
The New Geo-Strategic Environment for Transatlantic Cooperation and Values
On May 26-27 ICDT had the honor of co-organizing this year’s conference of the International Republican Institute's CASPER Program on “New Geo-Strategic Environment for Transatlantic Cooperation and Values”, in collaboration with NATO, the Heritage Foundation and the Hungarian Atlantic Council (MAT). The conference was held at the Hungarian Academy of Sciences. The closed-door conference brought together senior foreign policy thought-leaders from the United States, Europe, and especially Hungary to engage in discussions about security policy, hence enhancing strategic thinking and dialogue. The key topics included Trans-Atlantic cooperation in managing strategic pressures, in supporting Ukraine, and in combating malign narratives. Experts from NATO, the US, Europe, and Central-Eastern Europe analyzed the challenges posed by Russia and China in order to develop policy proposals for maintaining security and stability in the transatlantic arena.
