How Do Germany and the United States Engage with One Another to Address International Challenges?
The AICGS project “A German-American Dialogue of the Next Generation: Global Responsibility, Joint Engagement” engages young Americans and Germans in discussions of current issues of concern for the transatlantic relationship. The project participants are young leaders in a variety of fields who have been working together for several months in three groups representing the AICGS Program Areas (Foreign and Domestic Policy; Society, Culture, and Politics; and Geoeconomics) with the intent to frame and deliberate on the issues and create solutions to a variety of global challenges facing the United States and Germany. This conference highlights the results of the participants’ work.
