2020-21 Forum

The Sam Nunn Bank of America Policy Forum brings together noted academic, government, and private sector experts on technology, public policy, and international affairs to address issues of immediate importance to the nation.

Overview of Changing Transatlantic Security Landscape

The 2020 Sam Nunn-Bank of American Policy Forum will address the changing transatlantic landscape and the implications for managing great power relations. The forum will explore how preexisting conditions – proliferation of emerging technologies, BREXIT, migration, rising Chinese influence on the digital and tech agenda, internal political turbulence and transition, and other deep-seated trends – combine with more recent shocks presented by the COVID-19 pandemic and recent U.S. elections to challenge leadership and excite divisions across the post-Cold War transatlantic order.
