About This Event

As one of the United States’ strongest allies in Europe, Germany plays a key leadership role as a member of the G-7, G-20, EU, and NATO. In 2021, Germany’s foreign policy is facing a number of challenges—from renewing its affairs with the US and navigating complex relationships with China and Russia to bouncing back to a pre-COVID economy and strengthening the EU in the first year following Brexit—all while Chancellor Angela Merkel’s 16 years of leadership come to a close in September.

Council President's Club and leadership members are invited for the opportunity to lead the conversation with their questions and share perspectives at a Discussion Table event with German Ambassador Emily Haber on a wide range of issues, from the future of the US-German alliance to Germany’s approach to critical geopolitical and economic challenges in a pivotal election year.
