The European Union: Questions and Answers
The United States has strongly supported the European integration project since its inception as a means to foster democratic states and robust trading partners. The United States and the EU have a dynamic political partnership and share a huge trade and investment relationship. To expand and strengthen the transatlantic economy even further, the United States and the EU may soon embark on negotiations that could lead to a comprehensive trade and economic agreement. Nevertheless, some tensions exist, ranging from long-standing U.S.-EU trade disputes to those arising from different U.S.-EU views on data privacy and climate change. And while some in the EU are concerned that the U.S. "pivot" toward Asia could ultimately weaken U.S.-EU ties, U.S. officials worry that the ongoing Eurozone crisis could adversely affect the U.S. economic recovery. This report serves as a primer on the EU and provides a brief description of U.S.-EU relations that may be of interest in the 113th Congress.
