GARMISCH-PARTENKIRCHEN, Germany (Jan. 31, 2018) – Important for Marshall Center Staff and Faculty to know is that the Marshall Center’s and the Munich Security Conference’s Loisach Group will be hosting a roundtable discussion at the Munich Security Conference 2018.
This discussion will be led and attended by Marshall Center and Munich Security Conference Loisach Group members.
The Marshall Center and the Munich Security Conference created a partnership in August 2017 to commit to mutual cooperation in the European security dialogue. This partnership led to the establishment of the Loisach Group, which seeks to provide U.S. and German defense policymakers with sound recommendations on deterring Russian aggression and building a constructive relationship with Moscow.
The Loisach Group is in a unique position through the strategic partnership with the Marshall Center and the Munich Security Conference to bring together policy experts that can identify U.S. and German strategic overlaps and divisions. The identification of common interests will enable better informed policy recommendations for both countries.
The policy ideas produced in the upcoming papers will be published through collaboration between the Marshall Center and Munich Security Conference. This method will increase the amount of attention the ideas formulated within receive to give the policy recommendations the widest possible circulation. The members of the Loisach Group also hold significant influence in Washington D.C. and Berlin, and it is anticipated the Group’s findings will inform policy decisions in both governments.
