Abstract or Introduction
The recent developments in the Middle East, particularly the American war with Iraq and the European lack of unity, led to a deterioration of U.S. relations with the European Union. It is the goal of this term paper to explain the historic aspect of the transatlantic dialogue in general and discuss the recent developments.
The paper is split up into three parts. At first, it tries to give an historical overview about the transatlantic relations from 1948 to 1990. The second part discusses the changes in the nineties and the most important documents in the dialogue between the U.S. and the EU. The third and concluding part analyses the status quo of transatlantic relations and explains the reasons of the “new crisis”.
