Policy Program | Discussion with US Congress Senior Staffers and Staffers of the German Bundestag
On January 5, 2016, the Aspen Institute Germany hosted high-ranking members of various U.S. Congress committees as part of a visit by U.S. Congress Senior Staffers. After a brief summary of current security challenges by member of the German Bundestag and the Greens’ spokesperson on Foreign Policy Omid Nouripour, the U.S. senior staffers and staff members of the German Bundestag discussed said challenges. Despite different opinions on potential solutions, participants agreed that international crises represent challenges to the transatlantic community and as such can only be solved cooperatively.
