International Adenauer Network
Internationales Adenauer Netzwerk

Politische Entwicklungen und Herausforderungen wie Migration, Digitalisierung und die zunehmende Infragestellung multilateralen Handelns haben globale Auswirkungen und betreffen uns alle. Wenngleich einige politische Fragestellungen auf den ersten Blick ein regionales Phänomen zu sein scheinen, ist es unabdingbar, die Auswirkungen und Dimensionen in einem globalen Kontext zu analysieren und zu diskutieren.

Das Internationale Adenauer Netzwerk bringt junge und hochmotivierte Nachwuchspolitiker aus Europa, Lateinamerika, Asien, Afrika und dem Nahen Osten zusammen. Unser Ziel ist es, verschiedene Sichtweisen und unterschiedliche Standpunkte einzubeziehen, um eine kontinuierliche Plattform für den kontroversen Austausch und Dialog zu schaffen.
