IWP alumnus Scott Cullinane to launch U.S.-Europe Alliance

Former professional staff member for the House Committee on Foreign Affairs and IWP alumnus Scott Cullinane is launching the US-Europe Alliance (USEA) with a conference on “Confronting the Challenges of the 21st Century.”

This event is open and free to the public (More info/Register). It will be held on Tuesday, June 25, 2019 from 9:00 AM – 10:30 AM at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace at 1779 Massachusetts Avenue Northwest Washington, D.C. 20036.

The event will feature the Honorable Mick Mulvaney, Acting Chief of Staff for President Trump as a keynote speaker, as well as a panel discussion with Peter Navarro Ph.D., the Director of the Office of Trade and Manufacturing Policy, and Michael Auslin, Payson J. Treat Fellow in Contemporary Asia, Hoover Institution.

The speakers will focus on the shared values which bind the U.S. and Europe and the key challenges to those values, chiefly those coming from authoritarian countries such as China. Chinese contempt for rules and fairness drains almost a trillion USD each year from the U.S. and European economies. Losses caused by China’s mercantilism and theft of innovation are suffered by business owners and workers on both sides of the Atlantic. China’s strategic disregard of trade standards, equity, and democratic norms demands an effective response and transatlantic cooperation.

The USEA was inaugurated to sustain the free world by Americans who recognize the importance of a strong transatlantic partnership. The bipartisan, American organization is dedicated to educating and mobilizing Americans to advocate for the enduring strategic and economic alliance between the U.S. and Europe.
