Changing Demographics: Diversity in the United States and Germany 

October 29 at 10:00 am EST / 5:00 pm CEST

Speakers:
Dr. Petra Bendel, Professor of Political Science, Erlangen-Nürnberg University
Congressman Joaquin Castro (D-TX), Chairman of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus
Janet Murguia, President and CEO, UNIDOS
Cem Oezdemir, Member of the Bundestag (Bündnis 90/Die Grünen)

Moderator:
Michael Werz, Senior Fellow, Center for American Progress

In the coming decades, the demographics of Germany and the United States will undergo profound changes. The United States is likely to become a “minority-majority” country by the early 2040s, and German society is becoming increasingly diverse – with nearly a quarter of the population with a migration background – and also aging quickly. How can transatlantic relations become more inclusive and how will demographic shifts help – or hinder – transatlantic cooperation, particularly between Germany and the United States?

Registration for this discussion has ended.
