Transatlantic Policy Network
Building Tomorrow's Partnership Today
Since its launch in 1992, the Transatlantic Policy Network (TPN) has consistently sought to help define the transatlantic relationship in the post-Cold War world by promoting the closest possible partnership between the governments and peoples of the European Union and the United States.
From a small base of original support in the European Parliament and US Congress, TPN has grown into a broadly based multi-party group of EU and US politicians, corporate leaders, influential think tanks and academics. Through constant informal dialogue and the maintenance of close personal relationships, TPN participants keep the two administrations focused on the indispensability of pursuing the goal of a strengthened transatlantic partnership.
A new dimension to transatlantic cooperation, the Transatlantic Strategy Forum, was launched in Brussels on 18th February 2009 with the support of the Czech Presidency of the European Council. Its goal is to build a transatlantic capacity with the best qualities of a think tank allied to the capacity to mobilise governments in Europe and the US to identify and share strategic priorities. It is a joint initiative between its founding partners including the Atlantic Council of the US , the Transatlantic Policy Network (TPN), Chatham House, the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS) and the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Auswärtige Politik (DGAP).
