The Atlantic Review stands for analysis and commentary on transatlantic issues from security and economics to pop culture and Fulbright.
To achieve this, the website is designed to be used by everybody with an interest in transatlantic relations, and acts as a source for timely news updates, commentary, and the opportunity for people around the world to discuss pressing transatlantic issues. We select, summarize and comment on articles, analyses and reports from a large number of credible sources (newspapers, magazines, and internet media) from across the political spectrum, trying to lay the ground for deeper understanding on both sides of the Atlantic.
We believe that our critical, but fair and multifaceted news coverage can advance a meaningful transatlantic partnership and mutual understanding in the spirit of the Fulbright Program. We strive to confront anti-American sentiments in Europe and Anti-European sentiments in the US as well as ignorance on both sides.
We are convinced that there is value in a strong transatlantic relationship, but we recognize there are real problems that need to be addressed if the relationship is to succeed. We do not gloss over these problems, but instead provide critical, candid, and balanced perspectives on the status of transatlantic relations.
