James D. Bindenagel: America and Europe in the Twenty-first Century

ZEI Discussion Paper C 236/2016

The British have voted to leave the EU. The ‘BREXIT’ debate is emblematic of the populist forces sweeping Europe and the United States. Distrust of elites has propelled the forces of European disintegration and fragmentation. This British vote has international implications. The system of international norms and accepted policies, which in 1990 and the past decades delivered Germany and Europe whole, free, and in peace in a widening European Union, is now at risk. Today, ZEI Fellows face a multitude of challenges and will need to meet these challenges and defeat threats to transatlantic values and to the peaceful international order. They are now finished, yet just beginning. The Center for European Integration Fellows are capable of achieving greatness. Now it is up to them.
