The 16th German American Conference

November 15-17, 2024 | Cambridge, MA

Be ready to immerse yourself in international affairs, diplomacy, and transatlantic relations. We’re thrilled to invite you for another year of celebrating German-American friendship. Regardless if you’re eager to make an impact on the global stage or are curious about stepping beyond borders, we are your platform to engage in US and German politics, international relations, and forecasts of our planet.

This is not the time to shy away from silence, but to listen to those left out, treated unfairly, and with a different worldview.

HARD CONVERSATIONS

We believe this year’s theme is more relevant than ever! Conflict has become part of our everyday lives, and it’s crucial to keep the conversation going, even when it’s difficult to do so. Our goal is to tackle these hard conversations head-on to prevent further escalation and find common ground.
