The US and its special relationships in Europe after Trump, Danish Institute for International Studies

Thursday 19 January 2017, 10.00-11.15

DIIS ∙ Danish Institute for International Studies
Gl. Kalkbrænderi Vej 51A
2100 Copenhagen

DIIS, the Danish Institute for International Studies has the pleasure of inviting you to a seminar on the US and its special relations in Europe. At the seminar, scholars on US relations discuss the nature of personalities in US foreign policy, and discuss what we might expect in terms of change from the Trump presidency. What does it mean for a country like the UK, where the special relationship to the US has been a cornerstone for its foreign policy since the Second World War? What does it mean for a country like Denmark that has persistently followed the US in military engagements around the world since the turn of the century? Please join us for a discussion about these critical issues on January 19, the day before Trump takes office.
