Can Germany Be a Force for World Peace?
  • with Jan van Aken, Die Linke

For better or for worse, the Federal Republic of Germany enjoys a glowingly positive reputation in the world today. Noted for its stable democracy, world-class industry, and—at least until two decades ago—non-interventionist foreign policy. Despite being a leading arms exporter and a growing number of military deployments on foreign soil, Germany continues to be seen as a proponent of multilateralism and peaceful coexistence on the international stage. We’ll be joined by Jan van Aken, an expert on German arms sales and foreign policy and a member of Die Linke's executive board, to ask whether Germany can really act as a "force for peace" in the world, and what ideas the German Left has to move in this direction.
