• As the Cold War came to an end, globalization was often discussed and debated in theoretical terms. Today, it is an established fact, and we need to explore how the German-American relationship should adapt to meet the challenges and seize the opportunities presented by the globalization of free market and democratic principles. - Chairman Emeritus Robert M. Kimmitt
