Event Review: Counting down to the 2024 U.S. Elections
A Year in Different Perspectives
Today, we had the pleasure of discussing the upcoming 2024 U.S. elections 🇺🇸🗳️ with the director of our Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung USA office, Paul Linnarz, and transatlantic expert of the European Policy Centre, Ricardo Borges de Castro. During the event, we had the opportunity to clarify the current political landscape in the U.S. for everyone and discuss possible scenarios for the election's outcome. We put this into perspective when discussing the consequences of that outcome for the European Union 🇪🇺 and explored how the EU, if it has, prepared for any of these scenarios. We concluded that the EU needs to prepare well for what’s to come but, at the same time, accept any result and work with what’s there in a very unified manner. There is a lack of rationale for initiating an additional trade conflict, given the concurrent challenges being addressed by both the U.S. and the EU. The resilience of transatlantic relations is assured; it is imperative to approach these complexities with a strategic and collaborative perspective. 🌍🇺🇸🇪🇺
