The Center's Global Europe program addresses vital issues affecting the United States' relations with Europe through scholars-in-residence, seminars, international conferences and publications. These programmatic activities cover topics ranging from European energy security to the role of the European Union and NATO, from transitions from autocracy to counter-terrorism, climate change and the development of civil society. The program also investigates comparatively European approaches to policy issues of importance to the United States, including relations with Russia, the rise of China and India, conflicts and revolutions in South Asia and the Middle East, migration, and global governance. The program has had a special focus on furthering historical and contemporary understanding of Southeast Europe and the former communist countries of Eastern Europe.
