There is a remarkable disdain for Europe and its ideas across the political spectrum in the US. The left and elites criticize the way Europe is handling the debt crisis and even question whether there is still a Europe at all. In the Republican election campaign Europe-bashing has reached unprecedented virulence. Was the treatment of Iceland a model for all this? Michael T. Corgan, Assistant Professor of International Relations at Boston University, discussed the current transatlantic relations in the seminar series of the Institute of International Affairs and Centre for Small State Studies. The seminar was held in Lögberg room 101, Friday February 17 at 12:00.
