France and Germany in the refugee crisis: united in diversity?

on November 17, 2016, 16:33
Synthesis - Nicole Koenig

The first session of the Think Tanks Tandem initiative was held at the abbey of the Vaux-de-Cernay close to Paris on 8-9 July 2016. It was attended by some forty representatives of German and French think tanks as well as by German, French and European authorities.

The first round table addressed the issue of migration policy, while the second round table was devoted to the struggle against Islamist terrorism. This first round table was introduced by Marc-Olivier Padis, Director of Studies with Terra Nova, and Stefan Dehnert, Director of the Paris Bureau of the Friedrich Ebert Foundation.

Numerous German and French speakers intervened: this Synthesis by Nicole Koenig, resarch fellow in our office in Germany, the Jacques Delors Institut - Berlin (also available in French and German) endeavours to present the main analyses and guidelines resulting from the exchange of French and German views, identifying the points both of divergence and of convergence that emerged.

The Synthesis of the second round table on struggling against islamist terrorism, written by our director Yves Bertoncini, is also available.

Joschka Fischer, former German Federal Minister for Foreign Affairs and former German Vice-Chancellor, was the keynotespeaker of the dinner on "Europe after the British referendum". His speech is available on our SoundCloud channel.

The second session of the Think Tanks Tandem initiative was held on 21-22 October 2016, at the Stifgung Gensagen, near Berlin.
