Nuremberg Club Evening with former Federal Minister Christian Schmidt
New arms race, end of multilateralism or change through trade?
President Donald Trump visited Europe. His tweets and his political statements on the European Union, NATO, Russia, Nordstream 2, Brexit and trade policy have been widely echoed in the media and have brought to debate many principles believed to be safe.
There is a lively debate in the United States itself, in Europe and in Russia.
What consequences does "America First" have for the transatlantic relationship, a pillar of Western democracies' security and economic policy? Is there still a common position of the West towards Russia? What possibilities exist for Russia to influence elections in the USA and also in Europe, and what opportunities do we have to prevent such developments or at least clarify them transparently?
We invite you to a club evening on this topic.
"New arms race, end of multilateralism or change through trade?"

Christian Schmidt will be available for our questions after a keynote speech.
We experienced four weeks of meeting and peaceful competition at the World Cup. The OWWF has initiated a peace game of the U18 selection of the Russian Football Association and the German Football Association in Volgograd on 8 May 2018 in memory of 75 years of the end of the Battle of Stalingrad. In this game, players and spectators gathered under the banner "Football connects". Football actually connects, as the weeks of the World Cup have shown.
But we at OWWF don't just want football to connect, but trade to connect, bridges to connect and culture to connect. We have to work on that. We look forward to a joint debate on 20 September.
