As Europe grapples with the Covid-19 pandemic against a backdrop of instability in its own neighborhood and increasing great power competition beyond, a stronger European Union and a healthy transatlantic partnership underpinned by shared values are essential. But what is the role of a more united and self-confident Europe on the international stage? How can Europe leverage a shared commitment to democracy to build stronger ties with the United States and other global partners? And to what extent will European and U.S. interests align and bolster the transatlantic relationship? 

Join Carnegie for a conversation between the President of Finland, H.E. Sauli Niinistö, and the Brussels correspondent for the New York Times, Matina Stevis-Gridneff, as they discuss the future of Europe and the transatlantic partnership.
