Jacques Delors shaped the Europe we know today 11/01/2024

"When Jacques Delors was born in Paris on 25 July 1925, no one could have foreseen that he would become one of the most important and at the same time most unusual architects of European unification. [...] Delors's vision and his life as a great European remain a role model and point of reference for all those who are willing to lead the EU into the future."

Read the obituary written by Johannes Lindner, Co-Director of the Jacques Delors Centre.

20 Years Hertie School – Hertie Futures Forum Democracy 21/12/2023

Will 2024 change the face of democracy?

In last week's celebrating , we tackled key questions about the future of democracy, together with Wolfgang Schmidt (Head of the Federal Chancellery), Professorin Andrea Roemmele (Dean of Executive Education, Hertie School), Lilli Fischer (Deputy Faction Leader, City Council Erfurt), and Steffen Mau (Professor of Macrosociology, Humboldt Universität).

👉 What will happen next year in the US presidential elections 🇺🇸? With an out-dated electoral college and presidential primaries that are "a poison to the democratic system", the US has failed to reform, according to Andrea Roemmele.

👉 What are the reasons for declining trust in democratic institutions? Alongside structural hardships like inflation and the fact that political discourse feels “elitist” to many, Wolfgang Schmidt stressed that “online media accelerated the frequency of political discourse."

👉 How optimistic can we be about elections in East Germany 🇩🇪? Steffen Mau is cautious due to the "frightening" developments, which include cultural wars and external shocks to the democratic system. Lilli Fischer argued that political parties have to come closer to the people: “Sometimes the mountain has to go to the prophet."

Berlin to Brussels to Dubai: A Professional Year working on renewable energy 20/12/2023

Berlin to Brussels to Dubai: A Professional Year working on renewable energy ♻️ ⚡ 🌍

We spoke with Arthur Wiggers, a Master of Public Policy student from the Netherlands, who is currently doing his Professional Year in Brussels with the Global Renewables Alliance, an alliance of associations working on the transition to renewable energy. As part of his work, he was given the chance to travel to COP28, the annual climate conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC).

We talked about:
➡️ his motivation for doing a Professional Year
➡️ what he has learnt so far
➡️ his experience in Dubai and at the COP28

His advice for those questioning doing a Professional Year? "Explore beyond the ordinary. Embrace the opportunity to try new things and don't fear making mistakes. Life is a rollercoaster!"

The Hertie School community is deeply saddened to hear of the passing of Philippe Martin.

Philippe Martin was known among peers, colleagues and students as a brilliant economist and professor. As Dean of our partner institution, the Sciences Po School of Public Affairs, we had the privilege of getting to know him as a courageous thinker and practitioner. We will remember him as a trusted friend.

We offer our sincere condolences to his family and loved ones, and to the entire Sciences Po community.

"Democracy has always been changing. Democracy has always been on trial."

We spent our second discussing the future of democracy, together with Wolfgang Schmidt (Head of the Federal Chancellery), Andrea Römmele (Hertie School), Lilli Fischer (City Council Erfurt), Helmut Anheier (Hertie School) and Steffen Mau (Humboldt Universität).

We discussed everything to do with elections, political polarisation, illiberalism, and more. What role do social media and communication play in elections and the success of democracies? How have democracies changed over the past years? And do we still trust political parties and our governments?

This was the second event of our series, Hertie Futures Forum. In six discussions, we cover the political challenges of our times. The events also mark the celebration of . Thank you to all who joined!

Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte visits the Hertie School 13/12/2023

"There is only one solution to the big issues of our time, and that one solution is cooperation," Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte 🇳🇱 said in his visit to the Hertie School last Monday.

In a discussion with President Cornelia Woll, our students and guests, he said:
💭 the EU can be a major player on the world stage if its members cooperate;
💭 despite the recent Dutch election results, the Netherlands will remain at the heart of the EU;
💭 and he shared his experience with policy students, advising them to have a clear vision of what they want to achieve, but to leave "wiggle room" in political debates.

Happy (belated) Saint Nicholas Day! Though known as Nikolaus in German, the day's namesake also goes by many other names across Germany and Europe. The tradition in Germany is for children to polish their boots 🥾 and then wake up the next morning to find treats and gifts 🍫 left by Saint Nicholas.

Yesterday, we celebrated by cleaning our shoes, making gingerbread houses, and eating delicious waffles 🧇 Thank you to our Student Life team for bringing the festive spirit to Hertie and introducing our international students to some local German traditions 🎅🏻 🎁
