Founded in 1921, the Council on Foreign Relations is an independent, national member- ship organization and a nonpartisan center for scholars dedicated to producing and dis- seminating ideas so that individual and corporate members, as well as policymakers, journalists, students, and interested citizens in the United States and other countries, can better understand the world and the foreign policy choices facing the United.

Renewing the Atlantic Partnership We believe that the Atlantic alliance remains essential to secur-ing the core interests of Americans and Europeans alike. Charles A. Kupchan, Project Director. We hope that the efforts of this Task Force will help ensure that the Atlantic community is as vital and cohesive in this new century as it was in the last.

The Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) states that it is "dedicated to increasing America's understanding of the world and contributing ideas to . The Council accomplishes this mainly by promoting constructive debates and discussions, clarifying world issues, and publishing Foreign Affairs.

The transatlantic relationship is under serious strain. The end of the Cold War, Europes continuing integration, and the new array of threats confronting the West have led Americans and Europeans alike to question the durability and utility of the Atlantic alliance. The transatlantic rift that opened over the war in Iraq significantly intensified these concerns. This Task Force, established by the Council on Foreign Relations, examines the sources of recent tensions between the United States and Europe and lays out an agenda for renewing the Atlantic partnership. Led by Dr. Henry A. Kissinger, the former secretary of state and national security adviser, and current chairman of Kissinger Associates, Inc., and Dr. Lawrence H. Summers, the former secretary of the treasury and current president of Harvard University, the Task Force concludes that the United States and Europe should take advantage of their compatible interests and complementary capabilities to guard and extend the values and principles that continue to define the Atlantic community and to meet threats to their common purpose. The Task Force, directed by Council Senior Fellow and Director of European Studies Charles A. Kupchan, makes specific recommendations for bridging the transatlantic divide, such as reaching agreement on new rules of the road governing the use of military force; forging a common policy toward irresponsible states; increasing cooperation through multilateral institutions; developing a common approach to the greater Middle East; adapting NATO to new geopolitical realities; and liberalizing and expanding the global economy.

As can be expected from a document created by a large pool of contributors–a committee– this call for reinvigorating the partnership between Europe and North America is somewhat ambiguous and lacks a concrete call to action. It is well worth obtaining and reading if only because of the participation of Henry Kissinger and John Lewis Gaddis in its drafting.

The authors resort to complimentarities (yes a real word) that they believe are the basis of a renewed relationship and draw those out well. They even provide space for an "additional view" provided by Stephen M. Walt, who points out the impact of asymmetry of power that exists between the US and Europe post Cold War among other things.

Note that this was published in 2004, shortly after the Bush administration had launched the invasion of Iraq. That sheds light on what must have been the recognition of the participants that an overly aggressive United States was causing friction in cross-Atlantic dialogue.

What this report probably did not succeed in accomplishing may now be occurring as renewed aggression and militarization of Russia is bringing back Cold War rhetoric and forcing old friends to get back together in common cause.

Well worth adding to ones collection of documents on Atlantic relations.

Renewing the Atlantic Partnership is is an excelent and practical report that emphasizes the responsibility of the Western countries towards the rest of the world at a juncture when both time and space have compressed so much. No doubt, the West and, for that matter, the Atlantic countries have been the engine behind the revolutionary changes in almost every aspect of human life. Consequently, they have a responsibility to resolve problems that arise as a sequel to the administration of such Western initiatives and ideas in shaping the Oriental minds.

The report is down-to-earth and does not divine any easy solution but seeks to consummate the gains while relying on tested methods of the commendable role played so far by the transatlantic alliance, multilateral institutions, spread of democratic ideas, the force component that can be provided by the NATO, joint approaches to solve conflicts and economic problems.

Predictably, a report like this can't be expected to contain new and untried methods. It is here that the integrity of the authors lie.
