The American-German Institute (AGI) in Washington, DC, is the only think tank focused exclusively on the most pressing issues at stake for Germany and the United States. Affiliated with Johns Hopkins University (JHU), the Institute possesses in-depth policy and academic expertise and an extensive network on both sides of the Atlantic. AGI collaborates with policymakers, corporate leaders, and scholars to deliver in-depth, actionable analysis and fresh ideas that help anticipate trends, manage risk, and shape policy choices.
Our work addresses the top economic, foreign, security, domestic, and social policy issues affecting the United States, Germany, and the broader transatlantic relationship. This includes the trade and investment relationship, German-American defense and security ties and the NATO alliance, the impact of demographic change and diversity in both countries, common approaches to the challenges surrounding China, and issues of Holocaust remembrance and reconciliation. We anticipate transatlantic developments and explain how they will affect Germany, the United States, and the world.
