Focuses on how cultural beliefs and values, evolving interpretations of historical experiences, and shifting conceptions of national identity all shape perspectives and policy responses in the German-American dialogue. The Society, Culture & Politics Program, under the direction of Dr. Lily Gardner Feldman, is currently examining the topic of Reconciliation in Europe and Asia. AICGS looks to Germany for lessons for Japan’s international reconciliation in Northeast Asia. The Program also addresses issues of Immigration and Integration, particularly with reference to minority groups in Germany and the U.S. and their political and societal opportunities and challenges. In its New Political Generations emphasis, the Program centers on the values, identities, priorities, and new technological means that activate the political involvement of young Germans and Americans, and the consequences of their engagement for the future of German-American relations.
