Every Thursday morning at 8:30, DGAP’s Research Institute brings together experts and high-level guests to discuss the latest developments in geopolitics. This week, we will discuss the implications of a potential second Trump presidency for Europe. Ahead of the Munich Security Conference, our panelists will outline strategies to make Europe “Trump-proof,” emphasizing the enhancement of economic and defense capabilities to counter a probable decline in American engagement with Europe. Topics include the US support for Ukraine, the broader implications for European security, and how a shift in US policies might affect commitment to multilateral institutions, economic rules, and shared values.
