What makes Europe and the transatlantic relationship tick?

By James Thompson

What do you get when you combine over 40 Fulbrighters, the most important political institutions in Europe, and lots of Belgian waffles?  The 2018 Fulbright Seminar on the European Union and NATO, of course!

Through visits to the European Court of Justice, European Commission, NATO Headquarters, U.S. embassies and more, Fulbrighters got to know the people and places that make Europe and the transatlantic relationship tick. In this video, ten Germany-based Fulbright grantees share their experiences from the conference.
