The Trump White House. An Inside View on Transatlantic Cooperation and Global Issues

In the framework of the lecture series "Current Issues in North American Studies and Cultural Studies" curated by North American Studies Program, we offer a special event with Jürgen Hardt.

Following a large range of controversial policy topics during the Trump administration’s first year in office, transatlantic cooperation remains a key component of internationalpolitics. From the COP 23 climate negotiations to trade agreements and intergovernmental military alliances such as NATO, democracies on both sides of the Atlantic depend on close communication and joint decision-making. Jürgen Hardt, MdB, will share his views of transatlantic cooperation in the age of Trump - to be followed by a discussion moderated by Prof. Dr. Sabine Sielke and Dr. Peter Schniering.

  • Jürgen Hardt, MdB, is Coordinator of Transatlantic Cooperation at the Federal Foreign Office, Berlin. He was born in Hessen, growing up in the small city of Hofheim am Taunus. After serving the German Navy he earned a degree in Economics and is a member of the German Bundestag since 2009. In 2014, he was appointed by Chancellor Angela Merkel to be the Government’s Co-Coordinator of Transatlantic Cooperation. In this capacity, he works to strengthen the close bonds of friendship which have linked a free Germany with the United States and Canada. This work includes actively engaging the media to increase understanding of German’s enduring partnership with the United States and Canada, as well as work within the German government to strengthen this partnership.

Please note:
This event will take place at the Senatssaal (Mainbuilding) of the University of Bonn.
