Overview

This volume examines fundamental societal, economic, political, and security trends affecting the EU and the U.S. over the next decade. It posits what such trends could mean for the transatlantic partnership by 2020, and, using policy scenarios, recommends the choices likely to influence those patterns.

What will the rise of Asia and the BRICs (Brazil, Russia, India, and China) mean for Europe and the United States? How might the consequences differ for the transatlantic partners, and what would that mean for the transatlantic partnership itself? What demographic trends will influence Europe and North America, how will the impact differ, and what effect could this have on the transatlantic partnership? How will trends in demographic change, trends in human mobility, and changes in energy sustainability affect each side of the Atlantic, how will these effects differ for each partner, and what might be the consequences for the partnership? These are the issues explored in this important study.
