NATO and the Future of US Engagement in Europe
On this week's show, World Views dives into this week’s NATO summit with a roundtable discussion about the organization’s development and purpose, followed by an interview with Steve Hill, Legal Adviser and Director of the Office of Legal Affairs at NATO.
In the first roundtable discussion on World Views @ CIS, Rebecca Cruise and Suzette Grillot discuss the formation and history of NATO, one of the oldest standing international alliances. They'll talk about NATO’s shifting role in international politics, and what the Trump administration’s attitude toward membership could mean for the future of US relations with Europe.
