The origins of transatlantic relations go back to the 18th century at the time of the American War of Independence. But Brexit represents a potentially significant change to the way transatlantic relations have been organized since WWII. The "special relationship" between the United Kingdom and the United States, born out of historic and cultural affinities, has come under strain, since America traditionally relied on Britain as its political and economic entry point into Europe. This paper explores the new, post-Brexit system of multiple partnerships and alliances that is likely to emerge.
