In association with the British Embassy, Berlin

 

The 27th British German Forum considered how Europe can retain influence in a rapidly changing, and challenging, world, shaped by the rise of ‘emerging powers,’ economic crises and political uncertainties.

Topics of discussion included:

  • Europe’s internal political and economic challenges.
  • The shifting world power balance.
  • External threats such as terrorism and resource scarcity.
  • In the context of these recent changes, how can Europe remain competitive and influential?

A common strand linking these themes will be the issue of British and German perceptions of European identity and value systems:

  • What is Europe and what does it mean, in the twenty-first century, to be European?
  • How can European values be effectively and creatively promoted
