Germany and/in Europe

With the possible breakup of the Eurozone on every newspaper’s front page, the lecture by Stanford’s Jean-Monnet-Professor Uli Brückner provided a welcome opportunity to learn more about Germany’s role in the European Union. The two-hour long conversation covered everything from the history of the European Union to current global affairs–Dominique Strauss-Kahn, anyone? The Scotties were especially intrigued by Brückner’s description of several high-profile summer programs in European Studies; seems like this was not the last visit to Germany for some ASC students.
