Public Lecture: Donald Trump, Angela Merkel, and China: The Dawning of a New Global Order?

German and U.S. foreign and economic policy toward China differ in important aspects regarding both substance and style. Still, despite the competition and rivalry between the countries, there is a significant amount of transatlantic agreement on the challenges posed by China’s rise as a formidable global power. The Trump administration, however, has injected a great deal of uncertainty into German-American and wider transatlantic cooperation. In this context, Berlin’s role in global affairs is much more precarious than it seems. In this lecture, Larres examines the factors uniting and separating the transatlantic allies on China and other issues.

This event is sponsored by the Friends of the Institute for Advanced Study.

The lecture is free and open to the public, but registration is required. Additionally, the lecture will be live streamed below, beginning at 6:00 p.m.
