The transatlantic relationship remains the most important bilateral relationship in the world today. Agreement between the European Union (EU) and the United States of America (US) often provides an important practical basis for international action in a variety of policy areas that shape global political and economic relations. Similarly, disagreement between the United States and the European Union can stall action in a wide range of matters facing the international community. Due to the centrality of this bilateral relationship in the international system, EU-US agreement and cooperation is frequently crucial for facilitating the development and design of new forms of international governance across multiple policy areas. Nowhere is the centrality of the transatlantic relationship more important than in the international economy. Given the prominence of the transatlantic relationship in shaping international political decisions, investigations into the causes and consequences of cooperation between the European Union and the United States are particularly useful for understanding the likelihood of cooperation and stability in the international political economy.
