The future of Europe and Transatlantic Relations
See CG Ralf Horlemann’s op-ed in today’s The Boston Globe on the future of Europe and Transatlantic Relations. Sixty years after the Treaties of Rome were signed, the EU has become the most successful peace project in the world. We need the EU as a beacon of freedom and human rights and as an indispensable partner for the United States.

"I don’t want to pretend it will be easy. Nothing will be easier. Much will be harder. But I am highly aware that functioning transatlantic relations are something like the foundation of the West."
