What is AICGS?

Affiliated with Johns Hopkins University, the American Institute for Contemporary German Studies (AICGS) is an independent, nonpartisan think tank in Washington, DC, focused exclusively on the most pressing issues at stake for Germany and the United States. With in-depth policy expertise and understanding of both countries, AICGS collaborates with public sector leaders, policymakers, corporate leaders, and other research centers to deliver in-depth analysis and actionable intelligence on both sides of the Atlantic. Policymakers, business leaders, and the interested public draw on these insights to anticipate trends, reduce risk, and positively influence policy choices.

2018 will mark AICGS’ 35th year of anticipating changes, creating ideas, and facilitating a smarter German-American partnership. In preparation for this exciting anniversary, the Institute is busy building a new, modern, user-friendly website. What better way to celebrate being 35 years young? Now it will be easier than ever to stay up-to-date with the analysis, events, and expertise that AICGS offers.

The new will offer:

  • Quicker navigation to the content you want
  • Easier access to our transatlantic experts
  • Improved search function
  • Better integration with social media
  • Trending topics and articles

The world today is in a state of flux, and the German-American relationship is critical if we are going to successfully address the world’s biggest problems, from fighting terrorism, to defending human rights, to furthering cooperation in the world’s largest economic zone. As we have done for the past 34 years, AICGS will be here to support the German-American relationship through times both troubled and calm.

Please consider directing your #GivingTuesday support to AICGS this year, and help us reach our goal of $7,000 to build a new website.
