The Atlantic Council was delighted to welcome His Excellency Josep Borrell, High Representative of the European Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy and Vice-President of the European Commission, for a conversation on the transatlantic partnership and the European Union’s global role.
In 2021, the Atlantic Council doubled down on its mission to promote relations with the European Union, with its Europe Center at the heart of this effort. The Council was honored to welcome High Representative/Vice-President Borrell for a discussion on the opportunities for US-EU cooperation under a new US administration and his perspectives on how to build a more ambitious and resilient transatlantic partnership. In what concrete ways can both sides work together in a more volatile geopolitical environment? What would a transatlantic approach to China look like? How can the United States and European Union hold Russia accountable? What should be the US-EU joint response to challenges like climate change and COVID-19?
