Panel Discussion: “German-American Relations Under Stress”




The GABC, in partnership with the City of Hamburg, invites you to a discussion about “German-American Relations Under Stress,” featuring a panel of experts, on September 5th.

The current state of German-American relations is very often labeled as “extraordinary” or “historic”, but now we also hear “strained”, “tense” or “difficult”. From tariffs to trade, from NATO to nationalism, there is much we don’t understand about how the rhetoric reflects the relationship. Is there long-term damage between the two countries who have been close allies since the end of the Second World War? In the historic rooms of the Harvard Faculty Club where bright minds have met and debated for many years, we are asking these questions and analyze them with our distinguished guest and our expert keynote speakers:

Katharina Fegebank, Deputy Mayor of the City State of Hamburg and Senator for Science, Research & Equality
Prof. Robert Lawrence, Albert L. Williams Professor of International Trade and Investment, Harvard Kennedy School
Prof. Karl Kaiser, Senior Associate, Project on Europe and the Transatlantic Relationship, Harvard Kennedy School; former Director of the German Council on Foreign Relations and one of the preeminent experts on German-American relations
