Virtual Event | A New Era for Europe? A Conversation with Reinhard Bütikofer

This event will premiere on this page at 12:00 p.m. EDT, Tuesday, April 5. Register for the event here.

Please join Hudson Institute in welcoming Reinhard Bütikofer, German Member of the European Parliament and Vice-Chair of the European Greens/Free Alliance Party, for a discussion on Europe’s emerging foreign and defense policy in the aftermath of Putin’s invasion of Ukraine.

Mr. Bütikofer, who chairs the European Parliamentary Delegation for Relations with China, is a longtime critic of Germany’s Ostpolitik and a noted champion of human rights, and was sanctioned by the Chinese Communist Party in 2021 in part for his passionate defense of the Uyghurs.
