Wunderbar Together 2021: Germany, the U.S., and the Future of Democracy
Wunderbar Together 2021, the World Affairs Councils of America, the American Council on Germany, and Atlantik-Brücke partner with World Affairs Councils across the country to hold a series of virtual events that focus on challenges to democracy in Germany, Europe, and the United States. Experts discuss the causes of this democratic malaise, analyze how serious these threats are, and examine what can be done to push back against those pressures – with a view to the exploration of how Europe and the U.S. can better collaborate on these issues.
