On Monday, the 5th of December (18:30 – 20:00 hrs), our panel will examine the transatlantic alliance in times of geopolitical power shifts. Even though the USA is back as a central power for security in Europe due to the Ukraine war, the main focus of the USA is on its engagement in the Indo-Pacific region. Whereas once economic ties created common values, the system of international cooperation is now at stake
- The U.S. has shown itself to be a resolute leader of the West and a ‘European power’. How sustainable is the closing of ranks?
- The intention to make the EU a geopolitical power must take shape: through a powerful foreign policy and defence mechanisms against foreign economic coercion. Could Germany take the lead?
After a welcome note from Günther H. Oettinger, President of United Europe, we are delighted to announce Kurt Volker (Former US Ambassador, Distinguished Fellow, CEPA), Ljudmyla Melnyk (Researcher at Institut für Europäische Politik), Dr Josef Braml (Secretary-General, Trilateral Commission / German Group) and Iryna Stavchuk (Program Coordinator at the ECF and former Deputy Minister at the Ministry of environmental protection of Ukraine) as our panellists.
Cathryn Clüver Ashbrook, Exec Vice President/Senior Advisor, Bertelsmann Stiftung, will host our panel discussion.
