21st Foreign Policy Conference (Day 2) - Elements of a New Progressive Transatlanticism

Between Hard and Soft Power. The European Union in a More Competitive World

In a changing world, Europe needs to redefine its external relations. This also includes the transatlantic relationship, which used to be heavily dominated by NATO. As security cooperation between Europe and North America becomes more demanding, there are also new topics that can help deepen transatlantic cooperation.

In a transatlantic dialogue with next generation experts on both sides of the Atlantic, the Heinrich Boell Foundation wants to trace these new synergies, especially in the fields of

  • security and defense policy,
  • digital policy,
  • democracy politics and
  • the ecological transformation ("Green Deal")

The transatlantic dialogue takes place as part of the 21st Annual Foreign Policy Conference of the Heinrich Boell Foundation, which focuses on the concept of Europe's strategic sovereignty.


An Online-Event with (among others):

  • Sergey Lagodinsky, Member of the European Parliament, Brussels
  • Torrey Taussig, Harvard Kennedy School, Cambridge (USA)


This is day 2 of the 21st Foreign Policy Conference 2021.
