Transatlantic Disruption: Challenges and Opportunities
New Report and Thought Pieces from Perry World House
Wall display of national flagsFor decades, the transatlantic alliance has been a community built on collective defense, mutual investment and trade, and shared values. But in recent years, its stability has been thrown into question by disruptive factorsIn 2021, this phenomenon—transatlantic disruption—seems only more severe. The worldwide coronavirus pandemic has claimed over a million lives in Europe and the United States. The January 6 storming of the U.S. Capitol stirred fears of democratic backsliding and even coups d’état in countries that pride themselves on their peaceful transfers of power. Questions about further aggression by the Russian government in Eastern Europe remain.

What can scholars and policy leaders on both sides of the Atlantic do about transatlantic disruption? Based on the discussions and analyses of a recent Perry World House workshop, our new report and thought pieces make several policy and research recommendations on the challenges and opportunities facing the transatlantic community.
