Foreign Policy in the Dawn of Post-TrumpismDonald Trump's election as the 45th President of the United States marks a withdrawal from the U.S. policy we used to know: Previously, the unthinkable is becoming an option in terms of both domestic and foreign policy. As a close partner of the U.S., European government must also adjust to a reality that might have changed even beyond the Trump administration.
Against this background, the GMF takes the mid-term of the Trump administration as an opportunity to strengthen German, French and Polish responsiveness with regard to unexpected directions and turns of U.S. policy. Based on observable trends, experts from across the political spectrum evaluate the implications of domestic lines of development within the U.S. The project aims to expand the scope for foreign policy in Germany, France and Poland in order to identify both reactive and proactive policy options as well as strategic risks and opportunities for the respective governments.
