Series: Foreign Policy of the United States
BISAC: POL011000

Due to extensive cooperation on a wide range of issues, the relationship between the United States and Europe is often called the transatlantic partnership. The two sides have many common values and concerns, and have grown increasingly interdependent in terms of security and prosperity. The transatlantic relationship and the main areas of U.S.-European cooperation and shared interest are likely to have continuing implications for U.S. policy during the 114th Congress. Members of Congress may have an interest in considering the dimensions and dynamics of current issues in U.S.-European relations in the course of oversight or legislative activities, or in the context of direct interactions with European legislators and officials.

This book summarizes key issues that both illustrate the nature of U.S.-European cooperation based on shared interests and present challenges in terms of the efficacy of such cooperation. Moreover, economic sanctions on Russian individuals, entities, and sectors have been a key part of the U.S. response to Russia’s annexation of the Crimean region of Ukraine and Russia’s efforts to destabilize eastern Ukraine. This book discusses the economic implications of U.S. sanctions on Russia. Background information and issues of the Russian compliance with the Intermediate Range Nuclear Forces is also provided. Cuban sanctions; foreign policy of unaccompanied children from Central America; U.S. assistance in China; and combating terrorism is also discussed in this book.
