4/19- Germany and Europe Facing the Ukraine War

Germany and Europe Facing the Ukraine War: German Consul-General David Gill in Conversation with John Torpey
Wednesday, April 19, 7 p.m




Gain an in-depth perspective on German and European responses to the Russian invasion of Ukraine from German Consul-General David Gill, as the war enters its second year. Learn more about German popular responses to the first major land war in post-1945 Europe, as well as about the implications of Chancellor Scholz’s pivotal “Zeitenwende” speech. How has the German posture toward military conflict changed, and how long will German, American, and European support for Ukraine continue? Gill discusses these important questions with Presidential Professor John Torpey, director of the European Union Studies Center and the Ralph Bunche Institute for International Studies at the CUNY Graduate Center.


This event is the 2023 Otto and Fran Walter Memorial Lecture. 

Presented with the Ralph Bunche Institute for International Studies.
