European Exchange Program

Strengthening Multi-Lateral Leadership: A European Exchange Program was started by the Center in the fall of 2008 in an effort to improve transatlantic relations. The program brought 14 young leaders from positions of policy planning in European governments to Washington, DC, to meet experts involved in the 2009 and past Presidential transitions. Participants returned in the spring of 2009 to evaluate the progression of the transition through the first hundred days of the Obama Administration.
