Charlotte: New Chancellor? New Congress? What’s Next for a Changing Political Landscape

November 14, 2018 @ 11:45 am - 12:00 pm EST

The Charlotte Eric M. Warburg Chapter of the American Council on Germany and the N.C. Zeitgeist Foundation cordially invite you to a discussion and luncheon with Dr. Timo Lochocki, Visiting Professor for Public Policy at Davidson College for Fall 2018.

There will be a $20 charge to attend this event. RSVP here by November 13.

Dr. Timo Lochocki is the James K. Batten Visiting Professor for Public Policy at Davidson College for fall 2018, teaching European and German politics. Before joining Davidson he was a transatlantic fellow with the German Marshall Fund of the United States (GMF) based in Berlin and Paris; he is an expert on European party politics. His award-winning research focuses on the interplay between international policy challenges–e.g. Eurozone and immigration matters–and domestic party politics. He is also a lecturer on European Politics and Political Communication at Humboldt University Berlin and Bard College Berlin. He advises federal decision makers in Germany and regularly comments on German and European party politics for The Economist, POLITICO Europe, The New York Times, The London Times and Zeit Online, among others. Dr. Lochocki studied interdisciplinary social sciences in Germany, Norway, and the United States and holds a Ph.D. in comparative politics from Humboldt University Berlin. His doctoral thesis and first book explains varying electoral advances of right-wing populist parties in Europe. His second book, published just last month, offers strategies for the major parties to regain voters and the political center. It is titled: Die Vertrauensformel: So gewinnt unsere Demokratie ihre Wähler zurück (The Formula for Trust: How Our Democracy Can Win Back Its Voters).
