Project Description

The 3-year project is funded by the Transatlantik-Programm der Bundesrepublik Deutschland aus Mitteln des European Recovery Program (ERP) des Bundesministeriums für Wirtschaft und Energie (BMWi). A group of eight participants per program area and project year (July 1 – June 30) come together with AICGS project leaders during two virtual meetings (video conferences) and two conferences in Washington, DC. AICGS has identified one overarching theme in each of its program areas:

 

  • Foreign & Domestic Policy: the Transatlantic Partnership in the Global Order
  • Society, Culture & Politics: Civil Society, Conflict Resolution and Reconciliation
  • Geoeconomics: Transatlantic Economic Cooperation Challenges

 

During the course of the project year each program area convenes one group and holds two virtual meetings. The two conferences will bring all three groups together in a day-long, joint discussion followed by a day of site visits in Washington, DC. In addition, AICGS will feature several blogs by the participants on their topic of expertise; participants will identify policy recommendations to address or solve the issues of concern that will be presented at the final conference; and the project ends each year with a final publication and a briefing on the project results in Berlin with a few select participants as well as local experts in the areas of politics, economics, and the media.
