As one of the oldest Warburg Chapters, the St. Louis Chapter brings together those interested in transatlantic relations for lectures and discussions throughout the year. Since the founding of the St. Louis Chapter in 1996, it has covered a variety of topics ranging from foreign policy and diplomacy to business, art, literature, and even soccer.
The St. Louis Chapters works closely with universities such as Washington University and Webster, as well as nonprofit organizations such as the World Affairs Council and Missouri History Museum.
Recently, the chapter has hosted speakers such as Dr. Susanne Dröge, a Senior Fellow in the Global Issues Division at the German Institute for International and Security Affairs (SWP) Berlin and Jürgen Hardt, member of the German Bundestag and Coordinator of Transatlantic Cooperation.
