"The Empty Throne: America's Abdication of Global Leadership"

Buchvorstellung

Die USA ziehen sich aus ihrer Führungsrolle in der Welt zurück, so bezeichnen es Ivo H. Daalder und James M. Lindsay in ihrem neuen Buch "The Empty Throne: America’s Abdication of Global Leadership". Die drei Säulen der Nachkriegsordnung, die die US-Außenpolitik maßgeblich mitbestimmte - starke Allianzen, offene Märkte sowie eine Verpflichtung zur Verteidigung von Demokratie und Menschenrechten - stehen mit dem neuen US-Präsidenten, gemäß der Buchautoren, unter Druck. Sie argumentieren, dass die "America First"-Politik von Donald Trump die USA zunehmend isoliere. Die Ausstiege aus dem Pariser Klimaabkommen, dem Iran-Abkommen (JCPOA) oder der Transpazifischen Partnerschaft (TPP) sowie die Erhöhung von Zöllen gegenüber Verbündeten und Rivalen gleichermaßen verstärken paradoxerweise in Wirtschaft und Zivilgesellschaft den Wunsch nach Kooperationen zwischen den transatlantischen Partnern. Der Rückzug der USA führe somit zu einem stärkeren Einsatz anderer Nationen für die Weiterentwicklung der internationalen Weltordnung, zum Beispiel durch Deutschland.

The outcome are recommendations for Germany, India and China. This will further encourage the participants to build on their created ideas and thoughts and level-up the set of recommendations to discussions on feasible policy frameworks and their implementation.

Fostering digital innovation

Innovation experts from Asia visit Berlin

In the area of digital innovation, Germany can learn a lot from Asia. In September, a delegation of twelve Asian innovation experts visited Berlin. They had a clear message: Whoever wants to shape the future in his or her own interests must actively promote innovation and be open to change. In both areas, Germany still has some catching up to do.
