Trump is a symptom, not the cause of the trouble experienced by the US. The talk takes us back to basic democratic principles and argues that we need to understand what has gone wrong with the two institutions which, ever since the nineteenth century, have been considered crucial for making representative democracy work: political parties and free media. A number of concrete ways to rethink and re-design these institutions are offered.

The Ivy Circle Munich “Stammtisch”, also there are more special events to come! -> Stay tuned!

The Ivy Circle Munich “Stammtisch” meets once a quarter and gives all participants the opportunity to deepen existing contacts and get to know new people with similar background. Over a beer or a good glass of wine alumni from different schools not just get new insights in business but also have the opportunity to gain new friends.

Additional community events over and above the “Stammtisch” (e.g. visits of cultural events, project presentations, leisure time activities, speaker events) take place on a case by case basis. All participating universities/schools are very welcome to initiate and/or support such additional community events.

All events are being announced by email via the participating universities/schools and also on this web-site.

Our last meeting / “Stammtisch” took place on June 29, 2023. The next “Stammtisch” is planned to take place in September.

More in person events are to come in 2023!
