In doing so, they fulfilled a role that governments could not, and they acted in the name of vital governmental interests. These groups form what we can call the Transnational Transatlantic. Their efforts were behind the creation and perpetuation of a unique political space, an Atlantic Community, as a guiding sign of consensus with which both sides of the ocean could identify. It was also the nucleus for what many perceived to be the future of global governance 9 – the transatlantic core for

Methodologically the study of transatlantic relations traditionally focused on the political and diplomatic history of the twentieth century. However, with the dawn of the twenty-first century the research area transformed into the more encompassing field of Transatlantic Studies. The latter include political theory as well as a new emphasis on cultural, social, and transnational history. 9

Such choices might be contingent upon specific national contexts, or entirely unrelated (geo)political concerns, or transnational alliances, but they are precisely that: contingent, not automatic. While clearly significant, this emphasis on outcomes also – in our view unfortunately – militates against a questioning of the politics that takes place before those decisions are made.
