The University of Illinois in Urbana-Champaign invited a member to participate in an event on 13th of November at 7pm called “The New Speed of Politics: the European Parliament and the U.S. between Solidarity and Conflict”. This moderated panel discussion explores what roles the EU Parliament and U.S. Congress can play in repairing transatlantic relations in the coming years. Rather than deliver a prepared talk, the university wishes the former MEP to respond to a moderator’s questions such as: The expansion of the Executive Power has made presidential elections more eventful in determining the state of transatlantic relations. In light of the result of the U.S. presidential election, what can we expect for the next four years of the incoming administration? What role can the Parliament and Congress play to provide stability regardless of the political parties in power? How strongly do members of the European Parliament prioritize ideological alliances along the right/left axis over the U.S./European axis? Has the EU Parliament been involved in developing and verifying the evolution of transatlantic relations?
