2020 – Confrontation and Alliances in Europe

September 21st and 22nd, 2020

2020  –  Confrontation and Alliances in Europe

America confronts an interlocking set of issues and challenges in Europe. Russia tries to weaken NATO and Europe, and Europe tries to respond, but divides over economic issues. Europe is America’s largest export market, but disputes over trade and Iran sanctions divide us. Must the US lead in NATO in confronting Russia? How do we balance our interests in trade, defense, and the health of Europe and how are cyber issues impacting these questions? Panelists Ambassadors Molly Williamson, Deborah A. McCarthy, W. Robert Pearson, and Ronald E. Neumann addressed these questions and more at the 2020 Nebraska Ambassadors Forum at Omaha and Lincoln.
