Germany and the United States: Partners in Shaping a New International Order?
The transatlantic agenda for President Joe Biden and Chancellor Olaf Scholz was already ambitious. When the two leaders met in February 2022 as Russia massed troops on the Ukrainian border, they also discussed managing global competition with China, recovering from the pandemic, and using transatlantic formats to support democracies around the world. Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, followed by Chancellor Scholz’s announced Zeitenwende in German foreign policy, has reinforced the need for a strong German-American partnership in a world in flux. This AICGS symposium will examine how transatlantic cooperation can address the challenges we face at home and abroad.
Following the symposium, attendees are invited to a reception on the terrace.
