Partners in Prosperity

Daniel S. Hamilton

One of the most dangerous deficits facing transatlantic relations today is not in trade, payments, or military capabilities. It is a deficit in understanding the vital stake Americans and Europeans have developed in the health of their economic relationship. Globalization is happening faster and reaching deeper between Europe and America than between any other two continents. The transatlantic economy generates roughly $3.5 trillion in total commercial sales a year and employs over 12 million workers in mutually "insourced" jobs. This book maps the increasingly dense web of investment, trade, and jobs that connects Europe's regions to America's states. It traces the impact of NAFTA and EU enlargement on transatlantic economic flows. It tracks intercontinental "connectivity" in the new knowledge economy, and it sets forth areas in which Europe and America continue to be global pathfinders. In the context of today's debates about globalization and transatlantic drift, this book offers some unanticipated and counterintuitive connections that have important policy implications.

Conflict and Cooperation in Transatlantic Relations

Daniel S. Hamilton

In the wake of the transatlantic crisis over Iraq, are Americans and Europeans ready to forge a future together? Can the grand project of European integration be reconciled with a strategic reorientation of the transatlantic relationship to a global agenda? Or are Europeans and Americans destined to drift apart? The Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation asked prominent authors from both sides of the Atlantic to look beyond tensions over Iraq to deeper trends affecting the relationship. This collection of their views provides a balanced and thoughtful look at the challenges ahead in transatlantic relations. Contributors include Samuel Brittan (Financial Times), Chester A. Crocker (Georgetown University), Konstanty Gebert (Gazeta Wyborcza and Midrasz), Guillermo de la Dehesa (CEPR), Philip H. Gordon (Brookings Institution), Eduardo Marçal Grilo (Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation), Daniel S. Hamilton (Center for Transatlantic Relations), François Heisbourg (Fondation pour la Recherche Strategique), C. Randall Henning (American University), Paul Kennedy (Yale University), Fyodor Lukyanov (Russia in Global Affairs), Alain Minc (AM Conseil), Raúl Morodo (Universidad Complutense de Madrid), Jorge Sampaio (president of Portugal), Emílio Rui (Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation).

Transatlantic Transformations

Daniel S. Hamilton

The United States is engaged in an ambitious agenda of defense transformation that is revolutionizing the way the U.S. military organizes, trains, fights, and even thinks about conflict. What impact will this have on America's European allies? How can NATO transform itself for the 21st century? This volume examines the implications of U.S. defense transformation for NATO, particularly how America and its allies can close the "transatlantic transformation gap"—a looming breach in strategic orientation, spending priorities, and conceptual and operational planning and training. It examines European approaches to defense transformations and charts the progress made by the Alliance from Kosovo to Kabul—while showing how far it still has to go. The authors approach the issue of NATO transformation from different perspectives. As a whole, however, their argument is straightforward. If Alliance transformation is to be successful it must include, but also go beyond, the purely military dimension. NATO must transform its scope and strategic rationale, its capabilities, its partnerships—its very ways of doing business. They offer a range of policy prescriptions for the NATO Summit in Istanbul and beyond. Contributors include Richard L. Kugler, Rob de Wijk, George Robertson, Yves Boyer, Jeffrey P. Bialos, Andrew James, Hans Binnendijk, Manfred Engelhardt and Stuart L. Koehl.

European Defense Research & Development

Jeffrey P. Bialos

The enormous influence of technology on the conduct of modern warfare has been made obvious by recent conflicts in the Balkans, Afghanistan, and Iraq. Because current defense research and development (R&D) spending is a leading indicator of future defense technology, it is significant that Europe's investment in defense R&D is only one fourth that of the United States. The "R&D gap" continues to expand as the pace of U.S. spending accelerates while that of Europe remains flat. Moreover, the impact of European defense R&D is dissipated through fragmentation and duplications of effort in parallel national programs. The contributors to this volume consider the implications of this situation for tomorrow's European defense capabilities. They predict how the R&D gap could affect the future of transatlantic relationships and discuss the effectiveness of current efforts to rectify the problems. The book also discusses the prospects for expanded cooperation in defense research and development between the United States and its European allies. Contributors include Klaus Becher (European Union's Institute for Security Studies and Knowledge and Analysis LLP), Kenneth Flamm (Lyndon B. Johnson School of Public Affairs, University of Texas at Austin), Masako Ikegami (Center for Pacific Studies, Stockholm University), Jeffrey P. Bialos (Center for Transatlantic Relations, Johns Hopkins University – SAIS), David Gould (UK Defense Procurement Agency), Andrew James (University of Manchester, UK), Staffan Nasstrom (Swedish Defense Material Administration), Yves Boyer ( Fondation pour la Récherche Stratégique), Stuart Koehl (Center for Transatlantic Relations).

The European Union Constitutional Treaty

Esther Brimmer

Europeans have long sought to form "an ever closer union" through the European Union and its predecessors. Can a closer union be based on the constitutional treaty signed at the June 2004 summit meeting? What will it mean for Americans? This volume offers perspectives on these questions as it reviews the process by which the treaty was concluded, compares it to the American constitution, and discusses the treaty's prospects for passage. Contributors include Stefan Fröhlich (University of Erlangen-Nuremberg), Stephen Breyer (associate justice, U.S. Supreme Court), Robert Cottrell (Financial Times), Esther Brimmer (Center for Transatlantic Relations), Günter Burghardt (Delegation of the European Commission to the U.S.), and Lamberto Dini (senator, Republic of Italy).
