About this Site


This web site aims to reflect on issues related to transatlantic history and politics, democracy, globalization and human rights.

It is the outcome of a short-term transatlantic exchange program, the Transatlantic Students Symposia, and will feature a blog and suggestions for learning resources and materials on transatlantic issues and democracy promotion.

The authors writing on the site are alumni/ae of the symposium program. The site itself is maintained by one of the program initiators, Dr. Philipp Kneis.

The site is still in its initial stages. You will see its content grow over the years, and we would like to invite you to participate in a substantial discussion of issues that are relevant to us all.
