Anthony Gardner was appointed by President Obama as the U.S. Ambassador to the EU and served in this role between March 2014 and January 2017. He was not simply a witness to history—he helped to shape it. Anthony understands the EU, transatlantic relations and is a true advocate for multilateralism and a strong EU – American partnership.
In a conversation led by Public Affairs expert George McGregor, Managing Director, Interel, Ambassador Gardner will use the recent release of his book ‘Stars with Stripes’, expect a deep and personal insight into the importance and inner workings of US/EU relations, particularly in times of growing US-EU tensions, as well as a personal account of historic events such as the Ukraine crisis, the Paris Climate accords or the changing role of China.
Ambassador Gardner’s book ‘Stars with Stripes’ was created at a time of change and restructuring in American foreign policy and transatlantic relations and Tony’s memoir is timely for a world that is facing a new global crisis with transatlantic relations are under greater strain than at any time.
