Transatlantic cooperation is at the core of the rules-based international order that has provided security and prosperity for over 780 million people in the United States and across Europe. With the international order increasingly challenged, cooperation is crucial across the entire policy spectrum that defines the transatlantic relationship.

To unpack these challenges and opportunities, the Atlantic Council Europe Center’s #AtlanticDebrief hosts interviews with leading experts, policymakers, and newsmakers from both sides of the Atlantic.

You can watch #AtlanticDebrief on YouTube and as a podcast.
