The Goethe-Institut’s new English-language discussion series How’s It Going, Germany? provides a platform for perspectives and insights from leaders in German business, media, culture, and politics.
Moderated by well-known Washington Post editorial writer and member of the Council on Foreign Relations Charles Lane, these informal sessions present a glimpse into viewpoints about current issues answering the question: How’s it going, Germany?
Panelists will be Hon. Niels Annen, Member of the German Parliament (SPD) and Member of the Foreign Affairs Committee, and Paul Salem, Vice President for Policy and Research at the Middle East Institute.

This first event in the series is organized in cooperation with the Friedrich Ebert Foundation.
Lunch will be served at 12 pm; discussion begins at 12:30 pm.
