The Hamburg-Vigoni Forum brings together researchers, policy makers, and the public to discuss European policy issues.
As part of the Hamburg-Vigoni Forum’s conference program, Universität Hamburg invites you to a European policy discussion on 6 May 2021. The title of the talk is “Zwischen Krisenmanagement und Wiederaufbau—Die deutsche EU-Ratspräsidentschaft in der Bilanz.” The Zoom event is free for participants although registration is required.
From 1 July to 31 December 2020, Germany headed the European Union’s European Council. Our online conference, which will begin on 6 May 2021 at 7 pm with a video statement from the Minister of State for Europe at the Federal Foreign Office Michael Roth, will look back and ahead. Prof. Dr. Armin Hatje, legal scholar at Universität Hamburg, will moderate. Subsequently, Dr. Christiane Liermann Traniello, the secretary general of the German-Italian Villa Vigon center for dialog, Prof. Dr. Gabriel Felbermayr, president of the Kiel Institute for the World Economy, and the retired history professor Gabriele Clemens from Universität Hamburg will join the discussion.
In addition to looking at the German EU Council presidency from an expert perspective, they will also engage the viewers in a discussion. We welcome your questions and ideas. Anyone is welcome to register and participate for free. Find further information about the discussion at the registration link (ID: 841 2339 3037).
Universität Hamburg—University of Excellence founded the Hamburg-Vigoni Forum in 2020. To answer the question of what holds Europe together, the conference series will focus on European policy matters. There will be less focus on daily policy matters and more on matters such as territory, sovereignty, and identity as well as the global context. The goal is to bring together researchers, policy makers, and the public in an innovative way and especially to include young researchers and prominent politicians.
In addition to the University, the Europa-Kolleg Hamburg, the Institute for Peace Research and Security Policy (IFSH), and the German-Italian Villa Vigoni center for dialog coordinate the forum. The academic director of the format is Prof. Dr. Markus Kotzur, professor of European and international law at Universität Hamburg and president of the Europa-Kolleg.
There will be a video recording of the discussion on the Hamburg-Vigoni Forum’s website after 6 May 2021.
