On the occasion of the international publication of the results of the yearly public opinion polls, Transatlantic Trends 2010, the Paris Office of the German Marshall Fund of the US has the pleasure to invite you to a transatlantic conference on:

Transatlantic Relations in 2010: still work in progress?

With the exceptional participation of the Hon. Spencer Boyer (Assistant Deputy Secretary of State for Europe and Eurasian affairs, U.S State Department), the Hon. Dominique de Villepin (former Prime Minister of France; President, République Solidaire, to be confirmed), H.E. Amb. Richard Jones (Deputy Executive Director, International Energy Agency) and M. Christopher Dickey (Paris Bureau Chief and Middle East Regional Editor, Newsweek Magazine), we will examine the evolution of transatlantic relations and discuss how the United States and France in particular (on the eve of the French Presidency of the G20 and G8) could deepen their fruitful cooperation to enable good governance.

After a brief presentation of Transatlantic Trends 2010 results by the Director of GMF Paris office, François Lafond, a special attention will be devoted to the Presidency of Obama, in advance of the midterm elections, and the numerous challenges on the common agenda: the international economic crisis, the war in Afghanistan, and the role of the different emerging regional powers. Furthermore, this study facilitates the comparison between various European member states and the United States, and gives excellent indication on the strength and trends of transatlantic relations.

Transatlantic Trends is an annual project conducted since 2002 by the German Marshall Fund of the United States and the Compagnia di San Paolo, with additional support from Fundação Luso-Americana, Fundación BBVA, and the Tipping Point Foundation. TNS Opinion has conducted the 2010 survey in July and collected the data from the United States and 12 European countries: Bulgaria, France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Spain, Turkey and the United Kingdom. The aim of Transatlantic Trends is to better understand the positions of North Americans and Europeans on a number of international issues.

Please confirm your participation to Edouard de Tinguy (), by email, fax (01 47 23 48 16), or mail to the GMFUS, Paris Office, 30 rue Galilée 75116 Paris.
