A Security Watershed: A New Geopolitical Germany

Public event | Monday March 7th, 2022 | Holeman Lounge, National Press Club | 6-8:00pm | RSVP, proof of vaccination, and ID required to enter


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;

Dan Baer, Acting Director, Europe Program at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace;

Moderated by Jen Kirby, Foreign and National Security Reporter, VOX
