Recording: The Swinging States of America

Record¬≠ing of our event with Peter Bey¬≠er MP from Nov. 10.

Over the past four years, long¬≠stan¬≠ding norms and values of libe¬≠ral demo¬≠cra¬≠ci¬≠es have been cal¬≠led into ques¬≠ti¬≠on in the United Sta¬≠tes. Inter¬≠na¬≠tio¬≠nal trea¬≠ties and com¬≠mit¬≠ments have come under har¬≠sh review with some of them having been dis¬≠car¬≠ded. Moreo¬≠ver, the very legi¬≠ti¬≠ma¬≠cy of demo¬≠cra¬≠tic elec¬≠tions has been put under doubt ‚Äď a fact that the elec¬≠tions of 2020 have also shown to us. The future of the trans¬≠at¬≠lan¬≠tic part¬≠ners¬≠hip can no lon¬≠ger be taken for gran¬≠ted. And yet it is dif¬≠fi¬≠cult to ima¬≠gi¬≠ne a strong inter¬≠na¬≠tio¬≠nal alli¬≠an¬≠ce of defen¬≠ders of libe¬≠ral demo¬≠cra¬≠cy without a robust working trans¬≠at¬≠lan¬≠tic relationship.

We were hap¬≠py that Peter Bey¬≠er, coor¬≠di¬≠na¬≠tor of trans¬≠at¬≠lan¬≠tic coope¬≠ra¬≠ti¬≠on at the minis¬≠try of for¬≠eign affairs and mem¬≠ber of the Ger¬≠man Bun¬≠des¬≠tag, agreed to talk to us about the cur¬≠rent sta¬≠te of Ame¬≠ri¬≠can poli¬≠tics and the trans¬≠at¬≠lan¬≠tic rela¬≠ti¬≠ons. After finis¬≠hing his hig¬≠her edu¬≠ca¬≠ti¬≠on ent¬≠ran¬≠ce qua¬≠li¬≠fi¬≠ca¬≠ti¬≠on, Peter Bey¬≠er com¬≠ple¬≠ted his mili¬≠ta¬≠ry ser¬≠vice as a con¬≠script. He then stu¬≠di¬≠ed law at the uni¬≠ver¬≠si¬≠ties of D√ľs¬≠sel¬≠dorf and Bonn. Bey¬≠er began his legal care¬≠er in Ame¬≠ri¬≠ca and worked in Chi¬≠ca¬≠go and Los Ange¬≠les. In 2000, he enrol¬≠led in a post¬≠gra¬≠dua¬≠te legal stu¬≠dies pro¬≠gram at the Uni¬≠ver¬≠si¬≠ty of Vir¬≠gi¬≠nia School of Law in Char¬≠lot¬≠tes¬≠vil¬≠le and recei¬≠ved a Mas¬≠ter of Laws degree.

A com¬≠mit¬≠ted Atlan¬≠ti¬≠cist for many years, Bey¬≠er stands out among Mem¬≠bers of the Ger¬≠man Bun¬≠des¬≠tag and his par¬≠ty (CDU) as one of the most com¬≠mit¬≠ted advo¬≠ca¬≠tes of a strong trans¬≠at¬≠lan¬≠tic rela¬≠ti¬≠ons¬≠hip with the United Sta¬≠tes and Cana¬≠da. He ser¬≠ves as par¬≠lia¬≠men¬≠ta¬≠ry Spe¬≠cial Rap¬≠por¬≠teur on Trans¬≠at¬≠lan¬≠tic Rela¬≠ti¬≠ons in the Com¬≠mit¬≠tee on For¬≠eign Affairs. He is an acti¬≠ve mem¬≠ber of Atlan¬≠tik-Br√ľ¬≠cke, the Aspen Insti¬≠tu¬≠te and United Euro¬≠pe in addi¬≠ti¬≠on to nume¬≠rous orga¬≠niz¬≠a¬≠ti¬≠ons in his district. Peter Bey¬≠er, MP, is also Exe¬≠cu¬≠ti¬≠ve Vice-Pre¬≠si¬≠dent of the Sou¬≠the¬≠ast Euro¬≠pe Asso¬≠cia¬≠ti¬≠on. In April 2018, Bey¬≠er was appoin¬≠ted Coor¬≠di¬≠na¬≠tor of Trans¬≠at¬≠lan¬≠tic Cooperation.

This was a coope¬≠ra¬≠ti¬≠on bet¬≠ween the Bonn Chap¬≠ter of the Ger¬≠man Atlan¬≠tic Asso¬≠cia¬≠ti¬≠on and Jagel¬≠lo 2000 in Pra¬≠gue. We cor¬≠di¬≠al¬≠ly invi¬≠te you to take part in this one-hour Zoom event, which will be held in Eng¬≠lish and will be fol¬≠lo¬≠wed by an open Q&A.
