The European Union has recently been awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for its role in promoting peace, human rights, and stability since World War II. However, Europe is beset by crisis and division between the prosperous north and depression-stricken south. As the most populous and economically powerful member state of the European Union, Germany’s leadership – or lack thereof – is expected to determine the outcome of the crisis, thereby significantly impacting American economic prospects in the near future as well.
In response to questions about German leadership, Dr. Christian Brecht, German Consul General, will deliver a talk, “Germany and the European Union,” on German perspective on the European crisis on Thursday, October 25 at 3:30 p.m. in 101 Stevenson Hall. The event, sponsored by the Department of Languages, Literatures, and Cultures, is free and open to the public.
