Transatlantic Security

Within Transatlantic Security

The Transatlantic Security program explores and analyzes the relationship between the United States and Europe with a focus on mutual security. From determining how the NATO alliance should address 21st century threats to examining the future of the European Union, the program aims to craft new and innovative ways for the United States to work closely with its European allies. This is done in a variety of ways, from tabletop exercises to direct engagement with communities across America. Drawing on the knowledge and real-world experience of its team and associated adjuncts, along with its network of public and private sectors partners, the program provides policymakers on both sides of the Atlantic with concrete ideas and recommendations.

Across The Pond, In the Field


Brussels Sprouts Podcast

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. Follow the journey via cnasinthefield.org.
