Restoring U.S. Legitimacy in Europe and Beyond

Why is support for U.S. policies lowest among its closest friends? How can a new administration refurbish the country's image abroad? Restoring relations with European partners will be a key foreign policy priority for the next administration, as the rallying Euro and increasing strength of the European Union reposition Europe on the world stage. Josef Joffe, publisher-editor of the German weekly Die Zeit, explores the long-standing U.S.-European relationship and discusses how the next administration can restore U.S. legitimacy in Europe and beyond.

The event is presented as part of "The Road to 2008: American Leadership in an Uncertain World."  This 2007-2008 Chicago and the World Forum continues with a seven-part series on major international issues the next administration will face, including the role of international institutions, the Middle East, U.S. - Europe relations, globalization, and the rise of Asia.
