Whether the missile defence system or the situation in Georgia and Syria: In several cases the West is dependent on cooperation with Russia. An essential condition for this is an improved transatlantic cooperation between Europe and the US, beyond NATO. This is the conclusion of Heather A. Conley, Karsten D. Voigt, Almut Möller und Stefan Meister. A free trade agreement between Europe and the United States could strengthen this partnership and generate up to four million jobs.

Conducted by its chairman Karsten D. Voigt the discussion group Transatlantic Relations discussed with: Heather A. Conley, Senior Fellow and Director, Europe Program at the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS) in Washington D.C., Almut Möller, head of the Alfred von Oppenheim Center for European Policy Studies at the German Council on Foreign Relations (DGAP) and Dr. Stefan Meister, Program Officer at the DGAP’s Center for Central and Eastern Europe of the Robert Bosch Foundation.
