MSC@Amerikahaus - Emerging Leaders

Official Side Events of the Munich Security Conference

MSC@Amerikahaus – Emerging Leaders provides a unique space for intergenerational exchange in foreign and security politics. Future decision makers meet with established policy makers from around the world. It opens the discourse for those whose future is at stake and presents a forum for young voices to be heard by political experts and decision makers. The Amerikahaus–Bavarian Center for Transatlantic Relations and the MSC are proud to present an impressive number of events on issues such as the future of democracy, (social) media and security, the role of youth in security, the link between sustainability and security, and the role of the EU and its transatlantic allies in a future global order.

MSC@Amerikahaus – Emerging Leaders will feature events with partners such as Gallup, Aspen Institute, Junge Gesellschaft für Sicherheitspolitik, Young Transatlantic Initiative, Young DGAP, Junges Forum der Gesellschaft für Außenpolitik, Young Security Conference e.V., Bertelsmann Foundation and others.

The events are open to the general public as well as MSC participants and observers, and take place at Amerikahaus (Karolinenplatz 3, 80333 Munich).
