The Munich Security Conference and German-American Relations: A Road Ahead

Wed, 02/15/2017 - 16:00 to 18:00

Join the American Space Leipzig for a public roundtable with Professor Crister S. Garrett as we discuss the unfolding politics of German-American relations during the Trump presidency, and the themes that will shape the debates and politics of the 2017 Munich Security Conference.

The Münchner Sicherheitskonferenz is known as the “Davos of International Security Politics”. Like the annual gathering at the World Economic Forum in Davos, the annual gathering of the transatlantic security community in Munich involves the deliberating and debating of the key points for the contemporary international agenda. The 53rd annual Munich Security Conference (MSC) will be the first major international performance by the new Trump Administration, with the new American government sending a delegation including Secretary of Defense Mattis, Secretary of State Tillerson, and perhaps Vice-President Pence. This shows the importance and power of the MSC for German-American relations as they take shape during the first 100 days of the Trump administration.
