A Transatlantic New Deal: What Europe Should Pay to Promote US Engagement
This publication discusses the challenges to the transatlantic "burden-sharing" after the Bush administration took office in the US in 2001. The author claims that the progress on major global issues depends on finding ways to unblock the existing mutual mistrust through a new and more comprehensive approach to global burden-sharing issues. The paper discusses the possibilities for such an opportunity and argues for a more effective division of international labor, which should be based on comparative strengths. In particular, the author demonstrates how Europe could meet its own responsibilities more effectively and reshape the transatlantic debate.
