Renewing the German-American Partnership
German foreign policy faces profound challenges in 2021: Strengthening relations with the United States, navigating a complex relationship with China, working to ensure full post-COVID economic recovery in Europe and contributing to strengthening the European Union in the first full year following the UK exit from the Union – all while the 16-year political leadership of Angela Merkel as Chancellor comes to its end in September with a national election already dominating headlines. Germany’s Ambassador to the United States, Dr. Emily Haber, will discuss the future of the transatlantic and the German-American relationship with respect to key geopolitical and geo-economic questions facing her country in a critical election year. Faculty Chair, Nicholas Burns, will introduce the event and Executive Director, Cathryn Clüver Ashbrook, will moderate.
This event is part of the series “Meeting America,” the first of several virtual talks with the German Ambassador and American stakeholders across the United States.
This event is co-sponsored by the Eric M. Warburg Boston Chapter of the American Council on Germany.
