ABSTRACT

Transatlantic Trends 2020: Transatlantic Opinion on Global Challenges Before and After COVID-19   [open pdf - 0B]

From the Foreword: "2020 has been marked by an unprecedented series of political, economic, and societal shocks that have tested the resilience of the transatlantic relationship. From the coronavirus pandemic and its global implications, to regional issues such as the risk of military escalation with Iran, to purely transatlantic matters like the withdrawal of U.S. troops from Germany, the United States and Europe have experienced a multiplicity of crises that challenge the terms of the transatlantic partnership. [...] The transatlantic community can play an essential role in meeting these challenges, but for us to work in common purpose, we need to understand how those challenges look to our respective societies. [...] This edition of Transatlantic Trends includes the results of surveys conducted in the U.S., France, and Germany, first in January 2020 and then again in May, in order to gauge the Foreword impact of the pandemic on the public perceptions of different foreign policy issues. [...] Divided into five chapters, Transatlantic Trends provides a detailed picture of transatlantic public opinion on core and contemporary issues: the transatlantic relationship, international security and defense, international trade, relations with China, and digital issues."
