About this event

Continuing our two-part series on Chancellor Olaf Scholz’s Zeitenwende speech and the astonishing changes to German security, energy and foreign policy, this month’s Transatlantic Tuesday will discuss the about-face in German defense policy brought on by the war in Ukraine. The widely lauded announcement of a €100 billion investment in German defense spending was quickly followed by questions such as what does Germany’s announcement of sending heavy weapons to Ukraine mean in practice and how will increased spending influence defense policy and decision-making? To discuss these questions and more, we will speak with defense experts Claudia Major and Michal Baranowski in this month’s edition of #TransatlanticTuesdays.
