Posted Sep 08, 2019 | Clingendael, Brigitte Dekker, Sico van der Meer, Maaike Okano-Heijmans

The retreat of the United States from the international order marks a turning point in international affairs and for institutions and agreements that have epitomised world trade, arms control and human rights standards for decades. In this paper by Clingendael, Brigitte Dekker, Sico van der Meer and Maaike Okano-Heijmans suggest that this calls for new approaches to repair or build institutional arrangements that are capable of governing these issues on a multilateral level. Going forward, the EU needs to deliver on four parallel tracks: Continued engagement with the United States; deepened and renewed engagement with other partners and stakeholders; a broadening of multilateralism to new areas; and, in certain cases, new approaches.
