Through a New Prism: A Next Generation Strategy for the US-German Relationship
By The US-German Next Generation Project Fellows
In Through a New Prism: A Next Generation Strategy for the US-German Relationship, the Next Generation Project Fellows, six Americans and six Germans between the ages of 25 and 35, examine the US-German relationship from a "Next Generation" perspective. They argue that young Germans and Americans look at the world through a series of lenses, such as the desire for transparency, accountability, representation, diversity, and equality, which color their views on key issues for the US-German relationship.
Through a New Prism provides eighteen recommendations for strengthening the US-German relationship, some of which suggest new areas of collaboration, while others give classic solutions a new twist. The report is grounded in the belief that more important than the history the United States and Germany share is the future that both the people and their political leaders will help to create, sustain, and protect.
