Lecture by Roger Cohen
For the first time in the post-war years, an American president is hostile to the European Union and NATO. This hostility undermines the architecture of security and stability in Europe since 1945, but also creates new opportunities for European states. One thing is certain, nothing will be the same, even after Trump.
