With a high-ranking delegation of US-government representatives participating again, this year's Munich Security Conference was keenly awaited. Most certainly, the new national security strategy of the Trump administration was in the focus of many discussions there. Amanda Sloat of the Brookings Institution participated in the Conference and analyzed the results from a US perspective in her talk.

Amanda Sloat is a Robert Bosch Senior Fellow at the Center on the United States and Europe at Brookings and a non-resident fellow in the Ash Center at Harvard Kennedy School. Before that, she was deputy assistant secretary for Southern Europe and Eastern Mediterranean Affairs at the State Department. She is an expert on foreign and security policy and served in the US government for nearly a decade. (CV Amanda Sloat)
