The Transatlantic Relationship in the Wake of Revelations about U.S. Foreign Surveillance & the Ongoing Ukrainian-Russian Crisis

The transatlantic relationship, particularly from the German perspective, has been under great stress for almost a year due to revelations about U.S. foreign surveillance. Now the crisis with Ukraine and Russia threatens to add more strain. As voices in the U.S. and NATO call for a stronger response to Russia, Germany--with its preference for diplomatic over military instruments and its deep trade ties with Russia--is faced with hard choices. The transatlantic partnership remains crucial on these and other issues, such as the Middle East peace process, Iranian nuclear policy, and the challenge from China. Please join us for this meeting with Constanze Stelzenmüller and Daniela Schwarzer. Dr. Stelzenmüller is speaking as part of the Dr. Henry A. Kissinger Transatlantic Speaker Series, which was made possible by a generous grant from the Robert Bosch Foundation. This speaker series will bring fifteen high level German speakers to the United States in 2014 to speak at the ACG Eric M. Warburg Chapters across the country on important issues pertaining to the German-American and transatlantic partnerships.

This event is co-sponsored by the American Council on Germany
