YPFP Policy Picnic: Let's Talk About Transatlantic Relations

Institutional and Political Issues
Date: Tuesday, 21 August 2018 19:00 - 22:00

Venue: Parc Léopold  |  City: Brussel

YPFP Brussels is happy to invite you to another policy picnic on Tuesday, 21 August, at 19.00 at Parc Léopold to talk about one of the hot topics kicking off the summer: U.S. President Trump's visit to our very own stomping grounds in Brussels. Feel free to bring friends, some snacks and drinks, and enjoy the evening!

The buzz that followed the NATO Summit on 11-12 July, that continued on to more security and defence topics in Helsinki on 15 June, is for many of us Brusselians slowly replaced by holidays far from the political heat.

For those of us in Brussels, a picnic conversation over beers and baguettes would be a great way to re-visit those eventful days and consider their aftermath on the transatlantic relationship.

Let's exchange ideas on the conclusions of this summers' NATO Summit, and the role that President Trump played in the Summit discussions. Let's talk about tweets, the 2% (or 4%) debates and burden sharing. Let's talk about how our respective views from Washington and Brussels on security and defence issues have changed in the last few months, and how those changes affect the relationship between Washington and Brussels now and in the future. Finally, in light of the U.S. mid-term elections coming up in November, let's talk about what President Trump's possible re-election means for the U.S. and for us.

We look forward to sharing our ideas and hearing your views on the Trump Administration's approach to Brussels and transatlantic security relations! #EUevents
