(Boston, Mass.) — Amid speculation about the impact of the European Union adding 10 countries to its trading bloc and possibly creating a military arm to rival NATO, a conference at Boston University on November 11 will update the state of U.S.-Europe relationships. “The U.S. and Europe: Together or Apart?” will feature foreign-relations academics, government officials, and journalists, from both sides of the Atlantic.
Participants will include financier George Soros, former UN Ambassador Kenneth Adelman, Minister of Foreign Affairs Hans van den Broek of The Netherlands, Walter Russell Mead and Max Boot from the Council on Foreign Relations, Foreign Affairs Editor-in-Chief James Hoge, and Financial Times columnist Gerard Baker.
Open to the public and free, the conference is presented by the Institute for Human Sciences at Boston University, which is the Boston affiliate of the Vienna-based Institut fur die Wissenschaften vom Menschen (IWM), and the University of Amsterdam’s Duitsland Instituut (Institute for German Studies).
