Executive Summary

Over the past year, policymakers on both sides of the Atlantic have had to face grave economic and foreign policy challenges, heightened in a number of countries by the prospect of upcoming national elections. These challenges include the impact of more than half a decade of economic turmoil, concerns about the future of political revolutions in the Middle East and North Africa, Iran’s nuclear program, preparations for NATO winding down its Afghan mission by 2014, and a steadily worsening civil war in Syria. Transatlantic Trends paints a picture of a complex relationship between the United States and Europe, and how each responds to global challenges.1

In this context, the survey uncovered some significant findings. Four stand out particularly:

  • Europeans expressed growing dissatisfaction with the European Union and the euro;
  • widening divides emerged in Europe between successful and still-troubled economies;
  • NATO’s primary significance stemmed from its character as an alliance of democratic countries; and
  • Turkey continues its steady shift towards foreign policy unilateralism.

1 This year’s survey includes the United States, Turkey, and 11 European Union member states: France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Spain, Sweden, and the United Kingdom
