Virtual Event | Germany’s Worldview and the Crisis in Ukraine

This event will premiere on this page at 2:00 p.m. EST, Monday, February 7. Register for the event here.

Germany’s tepid response to Russia’s most recent threats against Ukraine have left Americans unsettled, raising questions about the future of the German-American alliance and Europe’s security architecture. Located at the heart of the continent, Germany acts as a consensus builder with huge economic firepower. Yet Germany’s troubled history and export economy, among other factors, have made it uncomfortable with exercising hard power, especially toward Russia. Join Hudson Institute’s Peter Rough as he welcomes three prominent Germany intellectuals to examine the roots of German foreign policy in light of the crisis over Ukraine.
