In the space of a week, we have all been plunged into a historical watershed for European security due to Vladimir Putin’s war against Ukraine - and democracy.
Germany, like its European and American allies, has responded with strength and resolve. On Sunday, February 27th, Chancellor Olaf Scholz held a remarkable speech in the Parliament announcing a robust new security policy for Germany: what is necessary for peace and security in Europe will be done.
Join us for a discussion of the implications of the German government’s announcement with a distinguished panel featuring
Verena Hubertz, Vice-Chair, Social Democratic Party of Germany, Parliamentary Group;
Metin Hakverdi, Member of the Bundestag, Social Democratic Party of Germany; Member of the Committee on the European Union;
Heather Hurlburt, Director, New Models of Policy Change, New America;
