About

The Atlantic Sentinel is a transatlantic news, analysis and commentary website. We explain American politics to European readers and European politics to Americans. Our focus is on the big stories of the day. We don’t chase the headlines. We pay attention to trends and developments that could have a long-term impact.

Authors

Editorial positions

The Atlantic Sentinel resists sweeping change. We believe the center must hold and that progress is made incrementally.

Our social views are liberal, but we sympathize with cultural conservatives. We value individual liberty as well as a sense of belonging and believe the challenge in our politics is satisfying both those instincts.

We’re confident free enterprise and free trade have proven themselves over dirigisme and protectionism, but we see a role for the state in providing for the common good.

We recognize that states act in their own interests, but we don’t believe that international relations are zero-sum. We are strong defenders of liberal institutions that regulate the affairs between nations.

Endorsements

We endorsed Jon Huntsman in America’s Republican presidential primary in 2012; Germany’s Angela Merkel in 2013; Sweden’s John Fredrik Reinfeldt that same year; and India’s Narendra Modi in 2014.

In 2015, we called for five more years of coalition government in the United Kingdom under David Cameron, the Conservative Party leader. We urged the British to vote to remain in the European Union in the 2016 referendum.

In Spain, we wished for a coalition between Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy’s People’s Party and the liberal Ciudadanos.

In America’s 2016 presidential election, we supported Hillary Clinton.
