Transatlantic Cooperation Begins at Home

The transatlantic partnership between the U.S. and Europe has long rested on domestic foundations that are now showing signs of wear and tear. Rising nationalism, widening inequality, declining trust, and intensifying illiberalism on both sides of the Atlantic are making it harder for American and European leaders to find common ground. Will the partnership weaken in the years ahead? The answer depends greatly on whether elites on both sides of the Atlantic are willing and able to take bold action to tame the bitterness, resentments, and mistrust roiling their domestic politics. Transatlantic cooperation begins at home.
