During its evolution since 1789, the United States has enjoyed a reputation of being more liberal, egalitarian and democratic than many other nations.  However, since the 2016 election, the world has been questioning what happened to the “Pax Americana.” For our 4th of July meeting, Roger Cohen will be offering special insights on his view of the current transatlantic relationships. 

 Among his many fields of global interest, Roger Cohen is one of America’s top-notch analysts on state of the transatlantic relationships with insightful columns appearing in The New York Times regularly on Wednesdays and Saturdays.  In 2009 he was was named Op-Ed columnist for The New York Times and joined The Times in 1990. He has served as a foreign correspondent and Foreign Editor, worked for The Wall Street Journal and Reuters and is the author of several books (Soldiers and Slaves: American POWs Trapped by the Nazis, Final Gamble, The Girl From Human Street: A Jewish Family Odyssey).

His work has received numerous top-level recognitions, including the Peter Weitz Prize from the German Marshall Fund, the Arthur F. Burns Prize, the Overseas Press Club Citation for Excellence, and the SOPA prize.
