Transatlantic Leadership Seminar
Was 2016 an anomaly in U.S. politics, or the year that revealed a lasting shift in electoral preferences? Many issues have since come to dominate the public discourse, including the norms of acceptable political behavior; the legitimacy of existing electoral practices; the integrity of public decision making; the social costs of rapid economic change; and the treatment of undocumented immigrants and new Americans. Much will be revealed this year, as the most powerful democracy in the world goes to the polls, with far-reaching consequences for the nature of the Union and the values it has championed since the end of the Cold War.
GMF’s Transatlantic Leadership Seminar on American Democracy 2020 will convene an online cohort of Americans and Europeans leaders to explore these and other issues with peers and experts from Washington, DC, Atlanta, GA, Cleveland, OH, Austin, TX, and Portland, OR. All meetings will take place online from October 20 to 26, will be expert-led, and structured to allow agile and interactive engagements. Participants will leave with enhanced understanding of contemporary trends and possible direction the United States may take after this year's election.
GMF’s Transatlantic Leadership Seminar enables leaders from business, government, and civil society to stay at the forefront of trends in the 21st. Registration is exclusive to GMF alumni, which includes alumni of the following programs: the Marshall Memorial Fellowship, Manfred Wörner Seminar, Transatlantic Inclusion Leaders Network, Transatlantic Forum for Migration and Integration, Policy Designers Network and Leadership Lab, Asmus Policy Entrepreneurs Fellowship, APSA Congressional Fellowship, and New Länder Fellowship.
