The Transatlantic Community of Values: Does It Still Exist?
To register for this event, please visit the Berlin-Brandenburgische Akademie der Wissenschaften.
The claim that the framework of common transatlantic values and rules is currently under threat is widespread. Yet what does this assertion actually mean? On what shared political beliefs and institutions is this “community of values” based? Does this community still exist? If so, what might the future of its beliefs and institutions be? These questions, focusing on the values of transatlantic institutions and their practical expression in international and domestic politics, will be discussed by a panel of distinguished experts: Mitchell Ash (moderator), Professor Emeritus of Modern History at the University of Vienna; Gerhard Casper, President Emeritus of Stanford University, American Academy in Berlin trustee; Anne-Marie Descôtes, French Ambassador to Germany; Klaus von Dohnanyi, former First Mayor of Hamburg and Federal Minister of Education and Science; and Christopher R. Hill, former US Ambassador; Chief Advisor to the Chancellor for Global Engagement at the University of Denver.
