Germany and the EU:What Kind of Transatlantic Partners?
Ambassador Wolfgang Ischinger
Chairman, the Munich Security Conference and
Former Deputy Foreign Minister of Germany
Introductory Remarks by
Wilson Center Director, President, and CEO Jane Harman
Monday, October 1, 2012
4:00 to 5:00 p.m.
Woodrow Wilson Center
5th Floor Conference Room
For years, Americans have taken a shortcut in understanding the labyrinth of EU institutions and policies by focusing on understanding the interests of one member state: Germany. This was a dubious strategy before the Lisbon Treaty and, since it introduced co-decision powers for the European Parliament, the High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy, the complexity has only increased. While complex, today’s EU remains important to the success of U.S. foreign policy. In this Director’s Forum, Ambassador Wolfgang Ischinger will help decode the European Union and explain how the United States can best use the resources offered by the transatlantic partnership.
