Power Vertical Podcast Ep. 12

Throughout the Cold War, it was understood that the United States would bear the brunt of the burden for Europe’s defense. And after the collapse of the Soviet Union and the Warsaw Pact, the issue of European defense and security was put on the back burner as military budgets shrank across the continent.

Now, with a resurgent and revanchist Russia, European security is front and center again. But the question remains: who will bear the burden? And what is the future of Atlanticism?

On the latest Power Vertical Podcast, Brian Whitmore discusses the current turbulence in the transatlantic relationship with Elisabeth Braw, a London-based adjunct fellow at CEPA.
