Since Russia’s invasion of Ukraine in 2022, attention on NATO has increased throughout the world. As its members prepare for the 75th NATO summit in early July, focus will intensify even more. In the U.S. we hear a lot of opinions about NATO, but how do Europeans feel about their security? The world will get key indicators of European political trends next month as 400 million people vote in European Parliamentary elections. Join us on the eve of these elections as the Consuls General of France and Germany discuss the future of NATO and the future of Europe.

On June 3rd, WorldBoston will host Dr. Sonja Kreibich, Consul General of Germany to New England and Mustafa Soykurt, Consul General of France in Boston for a timely Great Decisions program, featuring an expert discussion, live audience Q&A, and time for networking and discussion with other globally-oriented participants in the Newsfeed Café.

Dr. Sonja Kreibich took up her post as the Consul General of Germany to the New England States in July 2022. Before arriving in Boston, she served at the Federal Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Berlin as the Head of Division for Pan African Issues, Southern Africa and the Great Lakes from 2018-22.
Mustafa Soykurt is the Consul General of France in Boston, held the position of Technical Advisor for European Affairs at Matignon, in the offices of Édouard Philippe, Jean Castex and Élisabeth Borne.
