The Center for a New American Security (CNAS) and the Global Public Policy Institute in Berlin have launched a major new project, “Across the Pond, In the Field,” to engage new audiences across the country and better understand how people outside Washington view the transatlantic relationship, trade, alliances, and other foreign policy issues. The three-year project will feature trips to 12 cities, where two American and two European national security leaders will meet with local leaders, public audiences, students, and journalists. On the inaugural trip to Pittsburgh, the European guests were former German Minister of Defense Karl-Theodor zu Guttenberg and Swedish Ambassador to the U.S. Karin Olofsdotter.
