The (Never Very) Special Relationship – A Conversation with Sir Christopher Meyer, British Ambassador to the United States, 1997-2003

November 4, 2020 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

The “Special Relationship” is invoked on both sides of the Atlantic Ocean by Presidents and Prime Ministers to describe the close cultural and economic ties shared by the United States and the United Kingdom.  But, is it true?  Is it still the case in a time of “America First” and Brexit, or has it ever been the case?

Join Sir Christopher Meyer, UNC Professor Dr. Ted Leinbaugh, and fellow UNC students for a conversation via Zoom on this topic as well as the Ambassador’s analysis of the US presidential election results.  How will a new Biden administration or four more years of the Trump presidency impact the US/UK relationship?
