ADVISORY: Transatlantic Security Challenges

Friday, February 20, 2009 – 10:30am to 11:30am

WASHINGTON, DC—Transatlantic tensions were often strained during the Bush years due to disagreements over Iraq, detainee policy, the relevance of international law, and other issues. At the same time, the Atlantic Community has been faced with a growing number of security challenges—from the need to stabilize Afghanistan to the desire to prevent an Iranian nuclear capability—that require cooperation between the United States and its traditional European allies. What are the problems and prospects for strengthening the ability of the United States and Europe to improve their cooperation in meeting the pressing security challenges in the coming decade?

Please join us as The Right Honorable Des Browne MP, former UK Secretary of State for Defense, discusses the future of transatlantic security relations with Reuben Brigety, Director of the Sustainable Security Program at the Center for American Progress.
