The Social Democrat Party (SPD) is set to lead the next government in Germany at a critical moment when expanding Chinese influence, Russian interference, Brexit, and growing authoritarianism in Europe and elsewhere meet climate change and migration crises. What will the new governing coalition do to meet these challenges and what will be Germany’s foreign policy priorities?
Join the German Society of Pennsylvania and the American Council on Germany’s Philadelphia Warburg Chapter for an in-person lunch discussion with Bundestag Member Metin Hakverdi, chair of the SPD’s Working Group on USA/North America in the German Parliament—where he also serves as a member of the Parliamentary Committee for European Union Affairs.
The event will take place Wednesday, November 3 from 12:00-1:30 pm at the German Society’s historic home at 611 Spring Garden Street in Philadelphia. Lunch will be provided. Some parking is available, and the building is accessible by public transportation.
