Symposium: The Next Generation Transatlantic Relationship

  • The Chicago Council on Global Affairs 130 East Randolph Drive Chicago, IL 60601 (map)

The Executive Director of the German University Alliance has been invited to take part in a panel on Education, Apprenticeships, Technology, and the Transatlantic Relationship at the Symposium.

The transatlantic relationship has been a foundational element of the international order since World War II. Yet it is facing a crisis of confidence. The US government appears to be pursuing an increasingly isolationist approach while European leaders have suggested that the nature of the transatlantic alliance is changing significantly. Given the difficult and dynamic international climate, how can the transatlantic relationship evolve further, and how can countries like the US and Germany cooperate in solving the challenges ahead in the next decades? What are potential scenarios for the evolution of the transatlantic relationship against the background of challenges such as shifting global power dynamics and the ramifications of globalization, automation, and digitalization?

This half-day symposium is made possible as part of the Year of German-American Friendship "Deutschlandjahr USA" with the generous support of the German Federal Foreign Office, Goethe-Institut, and Federation of German Industries (BDI).
