This Week’s Report: "U.S.-Europe Relations"

As U.S. political and security priorities pivot toward the Asia-Pacific region, Western Europe is concerned that its historic alliance with the United States may be fraying, veteran foreign-affairs journalist Roland Flamini writes in this week’s Researcher.

Helping to define the future of the trans-Atlantic alliance will be two important meetings that President Obama will host in May: a North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) summit in Chicago and a summit of the Group of 8 industrialized nations at the Camp David presidential retreat.

Those interested in international relations, global economics, national defense and the influence of emerging nations will find this report especially useful and informative.
