The Transatlantic Partnership: The impact of elections, conflicts and changing world order on US-UK relations

Six months out from the United States Presidential Elections, with Parliamentary elections also imminent in the United Kingdom, join us for an evening of discussion as to what the transatlantic partnership between these two countries means today.


What will be the likely impact of the potential outcomes of the US/UK elections, and how are relations already shifting in a time of conflict and changing world order? Will the ‘special relationship,’ which has seen the two countries often acting in unison on the world stage endure, or will we enter a new era of international relations?


The event is being organised by the Foreign Policy Centre, Aston University, and the Bertelsmann Foundation, with support from the Coalition for Global Prosperity. It will also mark the launch by FPC and the Bertelsmann Foundation of the UK-US module of the Transatlantic Periscope ( The Transatlantic Periscope is an AI driven, human curated, platform tracking the bilateral relationships between the US and the 27 EU member countries plus the UK.
