In June, Jackson faculty took part in the Transatlantic Conference in Madrid. 

The conference—which was organized by IE School of Politics, Economics & Global Affairs, Yale Jackson School of Global Affairs, Sciences Po Paris School of International Affairs and the Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies—addressed key questions relating to EU-US cooperation on critical policy regarding politics, security, economics and global affairs. 

The three-day event convened leading academics, experts in the Atlantic geopolitical space and past and present fellows from each organizing institution. A series of focused, closed-door sessions led participants through lively discussions on trade, energy, technology, the Russo-Ukrainian war and recent developments in Asia, Latin America and the Indo-Pacific region under the theme, “Is the Transatlantic Relation Back from the Dead, and for What?”     

Jackson School dean Jim Levinsohn and senior lecturer Marnix Amand were among the speakers.
