The Friedrich Naumann Foundation and Partners launched a project in September 2020 to proactively generate ideas for keeping channels open between the UK, US and Europe - beyond Brexit. Through a series of dynamic roundtables and shared analysis, we are hosting a multidisciplinary group of politicians and governance practitioners; sectoral and professional experts, academics and think-tanks; campaigners, strategists and influencers. Together, this ever-expanding international network is brainstorming initiatives to promote constructive relations in several spheres – with the goal of fostering interconnectedness and resilience in this new era of populism and challenge to democracy.
