This webinar is supported by the United States diplomatic mission in Germany and presented in partnership with the International Security Forum Bonn 2020.
What is Germany’s vision of European defense? How does Germany see its own role, and what do Germany’s European allies expect from the continent’s largest economy and largest defense spender when it comes to defense burden sharing? This seminar will highlight the leadership challenges on European defense, consider how Germany’s role has changed, and seek to outline common ground on the way forward.
