The Transatlantic Security Relationship has been an anchor of European and U.S. foreign policy since the closing days of World War II. As the conflict drew to a close, a new one rose from its ashes. The Cold War and its many harrowing moments reinforced, time and again, the importance of maintaining close ties and mutual understanding across the ocean - a distance that has grown ever smaller in the age of globalization. The purpose of the conference was to examine the future of this storied alliance. There were three key objectives. First, we aimed to raise the national security communitys awareness and understanding of U.S. and European security relations. Our second goal was education-- our efforts sought to contribute to the knowledge of U.S.-European security affairs for faculty and university students from across the Southwestern United States. The last goal was to contribute to current research and publications on U.S.-European affairs by drawing attention to the security challenges the United States currently faces and with face in the near-term future.
