From 2014 to 2018, the Bundestag and Congress Staffers Exchange Program brought together legislative and committee staff from Germany and the United States to strengthen transatlantic ties on a working level and foster open dialog on current issues facing the transatlantic community. Topics discussed ranged from democracy and multilateralism to trade and security questions. During visits in Berlin and Washington, D.C., participating staffers had the opportunity to connect with their counterparts and gained deep insights into the political system and legislative processes. Site visits and expert talks offered in-depth knowledge on current issues of transatlantic importance. The Program was 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 (BMWi).
