Allmänna Försvarsföreningen (AFF) and Folk och Försvar have the pleasure to invite you to a seminar on President Trump and the future of the transatlantic security
As the Trump administration takes office, questions have been raised on the future of the transatlantic relations and on a global American foreign policy in transition. With regard to NATO, Russia, China, the Middle East, and international trade, President Trump has opened the door for new American postures, which would affect the Baltic Sea region and Sweden as well.
What will be the global foreign policy outlook of the new administration? How will it affect the transatlantic security community? What will be the implications for NATO and its partners? Will there be continuity or change in the American engagement in Baltic Sea Security? How is the bilateral Swedish-American defense cooperation developing and what are the prospects of deepening it further?
