German ambassador speaks at UD March 9

Wolfgang Ischinger, Germany’s ambassador to the United States
2:24 p.m., March 8, 2005--Wolfgang Ischinger, Germany’s ambassador to the United States, will speak about tensions between Europe and the U.S. at 7:30 p.m., Wednesday, March 9, in Mitchell Hall.

The talk, “Oceans Apart? Europe & the U.S.,” is part of UD’s “Prescription for the President: Policy Medicine for Global Challenges,” a series of Global Agenda lectures, being held 7:30 p.m., every other Wednesday, in Mitchell Hall, until May 18. The series is free and open to the public.

Ischinger, who weathered the political storm in German-American relations surrounding the U.S. invasion of Iraq, now is involved in current efforts to restore traditionally strong ties.

Ischinger earned a law degree in Germany and a master’s degree from the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy in Boston. He joined the German Foreign Service in 1975 and served in the Permanent Mission of Germany to the United Nations in New York, Paris and Washington, D.C.

Ischinger also worked as special assistant to two German foreign ministers and led German delegations to a number of international negotiating processes, including the Bosnia peace talks at Dayton, Ohio, negotiations concerning the NATO-Russia Founding Act, as well as the negotiations on NATO enlargement and on the Kosovo crisis.

Global Agenda is UD’s annual international affairs speaker series and an undergraduate course in which students meet practitioners in foreign policy and media from the U.S. and other nations.

Organized by Ralph Begleiter, UD’s Rosenberg Professor of Communication and distinguished journalist in residence, the series, part of UD's "America and the Global Community" initiative, is designed to survey potential threats to the U.S. and explore the complex framework of global relations. The series is cosponsored by UD and the World Affairs Council of Wilmington.

No reservations are required for the event. Free parking is available after 6 p.m. in the UD visitor’s lot, opposite Morris Library, at South College Avenue and Winslow Road.

For more information on the speakers and their subjects, visit [www.udel.edu/global]. For general information on the series, call the Department of Communication at (302) 831-8041.
