We are pleased to invite you to an American Club dinner speech on The Trump Presidency: Risks and Opportunities from a German Perspective.
It seems we are moving into uncharted political territory, full of uncertainty and foreboding. One cannot help but wonder how 2017 will play out, and how President Trump will react to these challenges. In the face of these risks, might there be a bright side? And, what does this all mean to Germany?
Here to address these questions is Prof. Dr. Joachim Krause, Director of the Institute for Security Policy at the University of Kiel. Until recently, he was Professor for Political Science at the University of Kiel. He has taught at Johns-Hopkins-University (Bologna Campus), and he is editor in chief of “SIRIUS-Zeitschrift für strategische Analysen“. He was member of the Executive Board of the Aspen Institute Germany and is chairman of the Scientific Board of the German Council on Foreign affairs. His recent publications include: Yearbook on Terrorism 2015/16 (2017); Routledge Handbook of Naval Strategy and Security (2016). Afghanistan, Pakistan and Strategic Change. Adjusting Western regional policy (2014); The EU, the UN and Collective Security (2013); Iran’s Nuclear Programme – Strategic Implications (2013).
The speech by Prof. Krause will be accompanied by a three-course meal and fine wine. Register* simply by sending an eMail with your name(s) to firstname.lastname@example.org, and kindly transferring payment of 35€ per member or 45€ per guest to

The German trade surplus is often criticized by international trade partners, also by the United States of America. Is the imbalance only a problem for German trade partners? Or does it harm the German economy as well? What are the reasons for export surplus? We are going to discuss this with Professor Wade Jacoby, Professor of Political Science at Brigham Young University. He will give a speech on the controversial topic of trade surplus or “Surplus Germany” from an American perspective.

The event will be moderated by Eveline Metzen, General Manager of the American Chamber of Commerce in Germany.

This event is organized by the Consulate General of the United States of America in Hamburg, the Handelskammer Hamburg, the American Chamber of Commerce and the American Club of Hamburg.
The US Midterm elections are less than two months away, and are surely to be the most closely watched of its kind in living history. Democrats are hoping for a “blue wave,” while Republicans are looking to hold on to the majorities they enjoy in the Senate and House of Representatives. What are the implications of either outcome, and how are the major races polling? Will President Trump and his party’s majority be vindicated for their first two years of policies, or is there change in the air?
Dr. Christoph von Marschall will address these question and others with his speech titled Trump and the Midterms. Since 1991, our speaker has been reporting for Der Tagesspiegel, currently as Diplomatic Correspondent, and served many years as the lone German newspaper correspondent in the White House Press Corps. He is the author of several books, including: Barack Obama. Der schwarze Kennedy, Michelle Obama. Ein amerikanischer Traum, and most recently Wir verstehen die Welt nicht mehr: Deutschlands Entfremdung von seinen Freunden. He also writes for Cicero and The Atlantic Times.
