The centrality of the relationship between the United States and Germany as the emerging main trans‐ atlantic bilateral relationship was what motivated the proposal of "partnership in leadership" by US President George Bush to the Chancellor of the Federal Republic of Germany, Helmut Kohl. However, the rede nition of the stra‐ tegic priorities of these two powers has never materialized in a coherent and coordinated way. At a time of profound change, where Russia's geopolitical revisionism and Brexit would con rm this bilateral centrality, the positions of the United States and Germany are more marked by the absence of leadership ‐ individual and collective ‐ than by bilateral cooperation or contestation of it.
