Which consequences do the US elections have for the US-European relationship? Today, at 6.30 pm CET, the Goethe-Institut Washington is broadcasting a livestream of the discussion "The Day After: German Perspectives on the US Election".

The 2016 US presidential election is considered one of the country’s most controversial and widely-debated around the world. Europeans closely followed the developments with skepticism as they asked what the result of the elections would mean for them.

A day after the elections, Dieter Dettke, Adjunct Graduate Professor at Georgetown University, veteran German journalist Klaus Jürgen Haller, and a group of election observers from Germany will talk with John Feffer, Co-director of Foreign Policy in Focus at the Institute for Policy Studies, Washington DC, about the possible impacts the results of this election could have on the US-European relationship. What does it mean to security politics? How could things change politically?

Follow the discussion via livestream on Facebook.

"How’s It Going, Germany?" addresses topics of general and timely interest reflecting the important role Germany plays within Europe and the transatlantic relationship. Issues that are widely and sometimes hotly discussed in the American media are featured, such as conflict in the Middle East, migration, new right-wing extremist groups, and the impact of the US elections on Europe. Join these conversations live at the Goethe-Institut as we bring together voices from Germany and the United States in the fields of business, media, culture and politics.
