 If power is derived from connectivity, then the focus of leadership should be on making connections to solve shared problems, wrote Anne-Marie Slaughter, then dean of Princeton s Woodrow Wilson School and now the head of the State Department s Office of Policy Planning staff, in the January/February 2009 issue of Foreign Affairs. Her emphasis on connecting and sharing, and hence on communicating, debating, and consulting, reflects the Obama administration s serious intention of engaging the world community. It is this new U.S. multilateralism that accounts for the rapid improvement of transatlantic relations and correspondingly diminished suspicions abroad of unilateral American power projection. Does the current spirit of cooperation among the Atlantic community reflect a  renewed rather than  new trust among the Atlantic partners? Is there now a detectable convergence between the European and American approaches to other regions? Which factors might tend to reinforce the new spirit of cooperation and which ones might deflect from the newly gained trust across the Atlantic community?
Senior Fellow, Center for Transatlantic Relations, SAIS - School of Advanced International Studies, Johns Hopkins University; Senior Advisor, McLarty Associates, Washington, D.C. Abstract
The changes in policy direction and tone of the Obama-Biden administration have been the primary factors in forging new trust in transatlantic cooperation. Reversals of Bush administration foreign policy are broad and fundamental: renewal of arms control negotiations; reaching out to the Islamic world including Iran;  pressing the reset button with Russia; attempting to end the Iraq war successfully and honorably; renunciation of torture and moving to close Guantanamo; pledging to battle climate change; and willingness to listen to allies. While policy differences can be expected to arise, the new trust promises to limit the fallout and maintain transatlantic partnership.
