Report Card on the German Military

Three members of a study group that has closely examined the German government's efforts to reform that country's military will present their findings at the National Press Club on Friday, September 28, 2001 at 9 a.m.

A year ago, the Johns Hopkins American Institute for Contemporary German Studies convened the study group to evaluate Germany's ambitious program to restructure its military, reform efforts that are critical to European and U.S. security interests.

With the end of the Cold War, the U.S. and its allies have looked to Germany for increased security support, as seen in German forces contributing in the war in Kosovo. But what is the status of the German military and is the government there making the proper investments? If Germany is not a viable military ally, what impact will that have on the United States and its other European allies?

Stephen Szabo, who chaired the study group and who is interim dean of the Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies, will join Joachim Krause, a professor at the University of Kiel, Germany and Ronald Asmus, a senior fellow on the Council of Foreign Relations, to discuss the study group's findings and to suggest policy options.

Reporters wishing to attend this briefing should RSVP to Illoka Oszvald at 202-332-9312, ext. 125 or by e-mailing ilonka@aicgs.org.

The American Institute for Contemporary German Studies is a center for advanced research, study and discourse relating to the Federal Republic of Germany, its politics, economy, culture and society. Founded in 1983, AICGS has been a premier source of research and analysis for the policymaking and policy-advising communities in the public and private sectors.
