High-level conference organized by the Association for International Affairs (AMO), Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Czech Republic in cooperation with the U.S. Embassy in the Czech Republic.
One hundred years ago, the United States played a crucial role in the establishing of the independent nations in Central and Eastern Europe. Thanks to the leadership of President Woodrow Wilson, the Czech Republic, together with other countries, is celebrating 100 years of its existence in 2018. The United States also contributed significantly to the freedom of the European nations after WWII as well as after the Cold War. The dream of “Europe whole and free” as put by G. H. Bush in his Mainz speech in 1989 started to become a reality just a few months after. American prudence then helped to navigate Central European nations towards NATO.
However, current Euro-American relations face many challenges. The role of the West in global issues is contested by resurgent and new regional powers. Many European NATO allies do not meet their defense spending pledge. European defense cooperation has been boosted in recent years and it is often doubted, whether NATO and the EU can co-exist or if they will ultimately clash. The trade relationship is a new issue on the agenda, which makes U.S.-EU relations even more tense.
The conference will bring together prominent experts from the United States, Germany and the Czech Republic to address these issues.
The full conference program in ENG: Future of the Transatlantic Bond programme.
