About This Event

As longstanding allies, the partnership between the United States and Germany is characterized by strong political, economic, and security ties, as well as shared strategic interests. Given rising geopolitical tensions around the world, cooperation between the two countries is becoming increasingly crucial. How are the US and Germany working together to respond to the conflict in the Middle East? How are they addressing China’s growing influence? And how are the US, Germany, and their NATO allies navigating the unpredictable security landscape in Europe? Join the Council for a conversation with German Ambassador Andreas Michaelis as we discuss these questions and more.
