Haddad in the Financial Times: Europe must wean itself off US defence to reset transatlantic relations
"American priorities are shifting under Joe Biden and the quicker the EU boosts its own ‘strategic autonomy’ the better," writes Benjamin Haddad in the Financial Times.
Benjamin Haddad is the senior director of the Europe Center at the Atlantic Council. He is an expert in European politics and transatlantic relations. Before moving to the Atlantic Council, he was a fellow at Hudson Institute in Washington DC.

His recent book “Paradise Lost: Europe in the World of Trump” makes the case for greater European unity in a world of new challenges and threats.
He has been published in Foreign Affairs, The American Interest, Foreign Policy, the Wall Street Journal, Le Monde, Le Figaro, Politique Etrangère and is a frequent guest on France 24, BFM, CBC, CNN, Fox News, and NPR.
