Join us for a discussion of transatlantic competition with Managing Director of the IMF Kristalina Georgieva and Executive Vice President of the European Commission Margrethe Vestager.
How US climate policy is likely to evolve, and which international impacts can be expected?
President Biden has promised to implement a levy on carbon-intensive imports, albeit without a federal domestic carbon price. The measure faces a number of difficulties, but could feasibly be implemented. The route chosen by the US will have important implications for the EU's own plans.
Join us to mark the launch of the eponymous paper co-written with the European Council on Foreign Relations.
It is hard to imagine how either the EU or the US can do better on the big issues if they pursue their interests separately.
In the eyes of Europeans, Joe Biden’s US election win brings the promise of major change with global relevance. From climate to multilateralism, to trade and managing global public goods, here is a take on how to understand this promise.
Time has come for Europe, the US and possibly China to create a global “Climate Club”.
How could we achieve a trilateral relationship between China, the EU and the US and consolidate it with climate goals?
Although the economic implications of the Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership (RCEP) for the EU are modest, the geopolitical and strategic implications are not. With the arrival of a new US administration and the central role of China in the bloc, the EU needs to outline an Asian commercial strategy that reconciles the importance of China and the transatlantic relationship.
With the Biden administration, there might be a difference in style, rather than a difference in trends.
"2021 can be a breakthrough year for climate: the new US administration and the EU have a real opportunity, through a ‘global net zero coalition’, to remove some of the key bottlenecks in the global path to climate neutrality."
With the US presidential elections around the corner we asked ourselves: what would a Biden administration look like? And what would a(nother) Trump administration look like?
