Leaders around the world have been forced to grapple with a series of unfamiliar threats to domestic and international stability. From the COVID-19 pandemic to right-wing populism and escalating state-sponsored and rogue cyberattacks, the need for effective leadership at this moment is critical. This can only be achieved through international exchange, idea-sharing, and learning from prior successes and failures of transatlantic leadership. Through research, polling, and our transatlantic legislative exchange program, CEPI, we seek to foster stronger transatlantic ties through a deeper mutual understanding.
The Congressional European Parliamentary Initiative (CEPI) program facilitates the exchange of ideas and experiences among senior staff of the German Bundestag and European Parliament, elected U.S. legislators, and select private sector individuals. It provides participants with exposure to legislative processes, policy formulation, and political and institutional challenges in the United States and Europe.
The Transition is a series of video interviews, infographics, and written briefs outlining a new transatlantic agenda intended to withstand a period of significant tumult in the U.S. and Europe.
In recent months, leaders around the world have been forced to grapple with a series of threats to domestic and international stability. From the COVID-19 pandemic and the resulting economic fallout to populism and escalating cyberattacks, the need for effective leadership at this moment is critical. But as dire as the situation seems today, we have been here before.
