The future of transatlantic relations is uncertain with tensions over technology, trade, and US industrial policy reinforcing the need for greater coordination and unity. With the war in Ukraine raging, fissures are emerging over the level of support given to Kyiv. Add to that disagreements over climate and energy policy, the sovereignty of supply chains, and the ‘reindustrialization’ of trade, and one has to wonder: are transatlantic ties headed for greater competition or cooperation? In view of the challenge posed by China and the war next door in Ukraine, how can Europe forge a more coordinated strategy with the US around technology and industry? In this George McGovern Lecture, Visiting Professor Philippe Etienne draws from his experience as Ambassador of France to the US to answer these and other questions.
