Election Directions: A Conversation with Ambassador Klaus Scharioth
- hochgeladen 8. November 2020
Scheduled just one week before Election Day in the United States, this conversation with former German Ambassador to the United States, Klaus Scharioth will explore what is at stake for German-American and European-American relations, no matter who wins the White House. Traditionally, the United States and Europe have cooperated in matters of enforcing global security, maintaining economic stability, and promoting democratic values, with the United States often leading the way. More recently, however, Europe has been forced to define its own path, as it breaks with the United States in responding to challenges such as climate change, the migration crisis, and the coronavirus pandemic. January 2021 will begin a new chapter in the transatlantic relationship, but which direction will it take?
