On June 5, 2019, the Aspen Institute Germany and the “Verein der Freunde des Aspen Instituts e.V.” hosted their annual summer party in Berlin. We had the pleasure to welcome guest of honor and speaker Tina Hassel, Editor in Chief and Chief Correspondent at ARD. The discussion between Tina Hassel and Rüdiger Lentz, Executive Director of the Aspen Institute Germany, gave an exciting insight into the currently challenging situation in German national politics. Our guest of honor addressed the status of the Grand Coalition, gave insights into her work as Editor in Chief at ARD, and talked about the challenges that established parties as well the media face, especially with regard to key issues for the future. Following the discussion, everyone came together for a wonderful summer reception in the courtyard of the Mendelssohn-Remise.
