**Please be advised: This event will premiere LIVE on this page at 12:00 p.m. EDT, Friday, December 4.**

Join Hudson Institute for a discussion with Ambassador Wolfgang Ischinger, author of the recently published World in Danger: Germany and Europe in an Uncertain Time. Hudson Institute Distinguished Fellow Walter Russell Mead will moderate the conversation.

Amb. Ischinger has been Chairman of the Munich Security Conference since 2008. A German career diplomat, he was State Secretary (Deputy Foreign Minister) from 1998 to 2001. From 2001 to 2006, he was the Germany's Ambassador to the U.S., and from 2006 to 2008, to the United Kingdom. He is a Senior Professor at the Hertie School of Governance in Berlin and serves on the board of several companies and non-profit-institutions, including Atlantik-Brücke, The American Academy in Berlin and The Atlantic Council.

In World in Danger, Amb. Ischinger examines the origins of current global crises, from U.S. retrenchment to the rise of nationalism in democracies and authoritarian regimes alike. He also offers a vision for Europe’s future – one in which the European Union can be an influential actor, defending the interests of its citizens, as well as the causes of peace and stability, globally.

Amb. Ischinger will discuss these themes, as well as how a change in U.S. presidential administrations might affect transatlantic relations in the coming years.
