Common Security and Defense Policy: What’s at Stake?

Geopolitical challenges continue to confront the transatlantic alliance ranging from Russia’s continued aggression in Ukraine to China’s military build-up and pressure on Taiwan to President Biden’s decision to remove American troops from Afghanistan by September of this year to cyber threats from adversaries around the world.

On July 20, the ACG and the Konrad Adenauer Stiftung USA hosted a discussion on transatlantic security and defense with Dr. Jana Puglierin, Head of the Berlin Office and Senior Policy Fellow, European Council on Foreign Relations (ECFR); Dr. Torrey Taussig, Research Director for the Project on Europe and the Transatlantic Relationship, Harvard Kennedy School’s Belfer Center; Nonresident Fellow, Brookings Institution’s Center on the United States and Europe; and moderated by Lauren M. Speranza, Director of Transatlantic Defense and Security, Center for European Policy Analysis (CEPA).
