German Fulbright Alumni PowWow: Emerging Democracies

The 25th anniversary "PowWow" of the German Fulbright Alumni Association took place last month in Berlin.

The conference focused on developments in transatlantic relations over the past 25 years, with topics ranging from politics, economy, technology, education, and just about everything in between.

The last day of the conference closed with a concluding panel about emerging democracies.

The panelists included Hassan Mekouar, speaking about Morocco, historian Svetlana Suveica speaking about Moldova, and Gil Carbajal speaking about Spain. Through this panel, guests were able to gain an insider's perspective on developments towards democracy as each panelist told their own personal findings and historical knowledge about the different countries and situations.
