Policy Program | The Aspen German-American Dialog – Revitalizing Our Partnership to Answer Common Challenges
From November 8-14, the Aspen Institute Germany hosted the first Aspen German-American Dialog under the auspices of the Coordinator for Transatlantic Cooperation, Representative Jürgen Hardt. The program aims to revitalize the German-American Partnership, to strengthen mutual understanding, and to provide a platform to find common answers to pressing problems of the 21st century at parliamentary and civil society level.
During two public panel discussions, the participating representatives from the U.S. and Germany discussed in Berlin current and future global challenges of the transatlantic community. While the representatives continued the dialog in a closed Session, the participating civil society representatives discussed further on during three more closed panel discussions and received several briefings before leaving to the participating German constituencies.
The Dialog is supported by the Transatlantic Program of the Federal Republic of Germany with funds from the European Recovery Program of the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy.
