Rethinking the Transatlantic: The U.S. Elections and the Challenges to a Sustainable Transatlantic Partnership

Auf¬≠zeich¬≠nung einer digi¬≠ta¬≠len Ver¬≠an¬≠stal¬≠tung mit Prof. Dr. Bir¬≠git¬≠ta Wolff, BM a.D. Chris¬≠ti¬≠an Schmidt MdB, Bot¬≠schaf¬≠ter a.D. Dani¬≠el Ben¬≠ja¬≠min, Prof. Dr. Nico¬≠le Dei¬≠tel¬≠hoff, J√ľr¬≠gen Trit¬≠tin MdB und Rebec¬≠ca Schmidt.

Over the past four years, long¬≠stan¬≠ding norms of libe¬≠ral demo¬≠cra¬≠cy have been thrown into ques¬≠ti¬≠on in the United Sta¬≠tes. The cur¬≠rent admi¬≠nis¬≠tra¬≠ti¬≠on has loo¬≠ked askan¬≠ce at sta¬≠te insti¬≠tu¬≠ti¬≠ons. Inter¬≠na¬≠tio¬≠nal trea¬≠ties and com¬≠mit¬≠ments have come under har¬≠sh review; some of them have been dis¬≠car¬≠ded. Moreo¬≠ver, the very legi¬≠ti¬≠ma¬≠cy of demo¬≠cra¬≠tic elec¬≠tions has been thrown into doubt. As poli¬≠ti¬≠cal eli¬≠tes have pola¬≠ri¬≠zed elec¬≠to¬≠ral poli¬≠tics, the Ame¬≠ri¬≠can peop¬≠le have beco¬≠me more divi¬≠ded than they have been sin¬≠ce Recon¬≠struc¬≠tion. Perhaps the only thing they agree on: Ame¬≠ri¬≠can demo¬≠cra¬≠cy is in cri¬≠sis. Given this domestic poli¬≠ti¬≠cal tur¬≠moil, the future of the trans¬≠at¬≠lan¬≠tic part¬≠ners¬≠hip can no lon¬≠ger be taken for gran¬≠ted. And yet it is hard to ima¬≠gi¬≠ne a strong inter¬≠na¬≠tio¬≠nal alli¬≠an¬≠ce of defen¬≠ders of libe¬≠ral demo¬≠cra¬≠cy without a robust working rela¬≠ti¬≠ons¬≠hip bet¬≠ween Euro¬≠pe and the US. Inde¬≠ed, the 2020 US Pre¬≠si¬≠den¬≠ti¬≠al elec¬≠tion will pro¬≠ve to be a waters¬≠hed moment for both Ame¬≠ri¬≠can demo¬≠cra¬≠cy and trans¬≠at¬≠lan¬≠tic rela¬≠ti¬≠ons. Against this back¬≠drop, we have gathe¬≠red an estee¬≠med group of trans¬≠at¬≠lan¬≠tic poli¬≠cy experts who dis¬≠cus¬≠sed the European‚ÄďAmerican part¬≠ners¬≠hip in light of the 2020 US elections:

Dani­el Ben­ja­min, pre­si­dent of the Ame­ri­can Aca­de­my in Berlin

Nico­le Dei­tel­hoff, a pro­fes­sor of inter­na­tio­nal rela­ti­ons at Goe­the-Uni­ver­si­ty Frank­furt and direc­tor of the Peace Rese­arch Insti­tu­te Frankfurt

J√ľr¬≠gen Trit¬≠tin MP, a mem¬≠ber of the Com¬≠mit¬≠tee on For¬≠eign Affairs in the Ger¬≠man Parliament

Their vir¬≠tu¬≠al dis¬≠cus¬≠sion had been mode¬≠ra¬≠ted by:

Rebec­ca Schmidt, mana­ging direc­tor of the Rese­arch Cen­ter Nor­ma­ti­ve Orders at Goe­the-Uni­ver­si­ty Frankfurt.

The Ame¬≠ri¬≠can Aca¬≠de¬≠my in Ber¬≠lin, the Ger¬≠man Atlan¬≠tic Asso¬≠cia¬≠ti¬≠on, and Goe¬≠the-Uni¬≠ver¬≠si¬≠ty Frank¬≠furt in con¬≠junc¬≠tion with its Rese¬≠arch Cen¬≠ter Nor¬≠ma¬≠ti¬≠ve Orders cor¬≠di¬≠al¬≠ly invi¬≠ted to take part in this one-hour Zoom event, which was held in Eng¬≠lish. The evening‚Äôs pro¬≠gram was orga¬≠ni¬≠zed by Dr. Berit Ebert, Head of Pro¬≠grams and Deve¬≠lo¬≠p¬≠ment at the Ame¬≠ri¬≠can Aca¬≠de¬≠my, Eli¬≠sa¬≠bet Tsir¬≠ki¬≠ni¬≠dou, Head of Office of the Ger¬≠man Atlan¬≠tic Asso¬≠cia¬≠ti¬≠on, and Johan¬≠nes V√∂lz, Hei¬≠sen¬≠berg-Pro¬≠fes¬≠sor of Ame¬≠ri¬≠can Stu¬≠dies at Goe¬≠the-Uni¬≠ver¬≠si¬≠ty Frankfurt.

Many thanks to all involved!
