Inauguration Day in America: Linking Washington and Berlin

Ame­ri­ca has voted. On Janu­a­ry 20, Joe Biden will be sworn in as the 46th Pre­si­dent of the United Sta­tes. Rare­ly has a U.S. pre­si­den­ti­al tran­si­ti­on spar­ked as much atten­ti­on and con­cern as the cur­rent one. The­med Ame­ri­ca United, Biden’s inau­gu­ra­ti­on cere­mo­ny is inten­ded to mark a new chap­ter drawing from a core pil­lar of his cam­pai­gn in brin­ging the coun­try together.

To con­clu­de our Road to Elec­tion Night & Bey­ond seri­es, 13 experts from the trans­at­lan­tic com­mu­ni­ty will con­ve­ne in Ber­lin to help you make sen­se of the inau­gu­ral pro­cess and its impli­ca­ti­ons on both sides of the Atlan­tic. Join us for two vir­tu­al dis­cus­sions on Inau­gu­ra­ti­on Day and lis­ten in as key repre­sen­ta­ti­ves from trans­at­lan­tic insti­tu­ti­ons and poli­ti­cal foun­da­ti­ons share their expec­ta­ti­ons regar­ding the Biden-Har­ris admi­nis­tra­ti­on and the future of the Euro-Ame­ri­can bond.
