NATO and the transatlantic relationship

This article is a transcript of Michael Rühle’s key note speech at the special symposium organized on November 2, 2017 by the Netherlands Atlantic Association to celebrate its 65th anniversary. Rühle argues that recent trends like Donald Trump’s America First policy have made people fear for the future of transatlantic relations, and even NATO. However, by placing these tensions in a historical context, Rühre proves that NATO has weathered bigger storms than this.
