First Resort: An Agenda for the United States and the European Union

This report presents the conclusions of a project to set forth concrete recommendations to make the relationship between the United States and the European Union more strategic and effective. The project’s intent was to look beyond the traditional foreign affairs agenda to explore practical ways to advance U.S.-EU partnership in 5 areas: health; resilience; digital issues; climate change and energy transformation, and trade and investment.

Recommendations will be evaluated for its policy relevance for the Netherlands. 4 webinars took place in preparation of the report, organised by Dan Hamilton and the Transatlantic Leadership Network, with participation of NL MFA/WAS and some European partners.
