The Future of Transatlantic Relations – In Partnership with Foreign Affairs Magazine

The relationship between the United States and the countries of Europe has been a cornerstone of the liberal world order established during the Bretton Woods conference and in the wake of World War II. However, it is increasingly apparent that the relationship is under strain and that other countries and regions have potentially conflicting visions regarding how the regulation of international society should be achieved.
Albertine in partnership with the magazine Foreign Affairs invites you to a discussion on the future of the transatlantic relations with Foreign Affairs Executive Editor Daniel Kurtz-Phelan and author Romuald Sciora.
Daniel Kurtz-Phelan’s new book The China Mission will be also discussed. A book signing will follow the conference.
Foreign Affairs will offer a special discount on yearly digital subscription ($24,95 vs $119) to all participants.
