The erosion of transatlantic relations is a strategic crisis for Germany. The Trump years revealed the indispensability of the alliance of Western democracies without which a stable and united Europe cannot be sustained. A group of experts most recently published a proposal urging the German government to seize the opportunity of Joe Biden’s presidency to reach a new consensus with the United States. More Ambition, Please! is driven by the will to think beyond one legislative term, to act in a bipartisan way, and to harness the energy of young people and diverse minorities to shape the future of the transatlantic alliance.
On February 24, 2021 Aspen Germany welcomed five of the proposal’s contributors (Dr. David Deißner, Atlantik-Brücke; Thomas Kleine-Brockhoff, German Marhsall Fund of the United States; Dr. Stormy-Annika Mildner, Aspen Institute Germany; Andrea Rotter, Hanns Seidel Foundation; Boris Ruge, Munich Security Conference) to provide insights on four of its focused policy areas: technology, trade, security and China.
