Course Description

IN PERSON: Europe is not just a land of museums and castles, but an indispensable partner who may be as vital to our future as they were to our past. The European Union remains our largest trading partner and our leading investor. Despite this, some so-called strategists argue that America should pivot to Asia where the largest populations live and thrive. Members of NATO and Canada are the largest group of American allies in the world. They rose to our defense after 9/11 and chased terrorists with us. These nations are our strongest partners in opposing Russia's conquests and Iran's nuclear plans. We are united by trust, shared values and a common democratic bond. In this lecture-based course, students will learn about the history and future of transatlantic relations, development of a rules-based international order for economics, human rights, arms control, and judicial and military-politico consultations. At least one session will be devoted to discussion of Europe at the current moment. | Lecture + Q&A.

Max enrollment: 30.
