There is no way back for transatlantic politics. Even with a new president in the White House in 2021, the setbacks of recent years will require partners to build a new, and different, alliance. 

On behalf of the European Parliament's Committee on Foreign Affairs (AFET), we are pleased to invite you to a webinar on: A new beginning in the Transatlantic Partnership.
