The Hertie School International Relations Club welcomes David Frum, staff writer at The Atlantic and former assistant and speechwriter to President George W. Bush for a discussion with current students and alumni. Open to the Hertie School community only. Hosted together with the American Academy in Berlin.
Can the Republican Party Survive Trump?
A recognised intellectual leader of the American conservative movement, David Frum is the author of nine books, most recently of Trumpocracy: The Corruption of the American Republic (Harper 2018). He is currently at work on a book about renewing American world leadership after the Trump presidency.
Frum has been a fellow at the American Enterprise Institute, a trustee of the Republican Jewish Coalition, and chairman of the board of trustees of Policy Exchange, the leading center-right think tank in the United Kingdom. He appears frequently on CNN, MSNBC, and the Australian, British, and Canadian Broadcasting Corporations. He earned a BA and MA in history at Yale University and a JD at Harvard University, where he served as president of the Harvard chapter of the Federalist Society.
This initiative hosted by the International Relations Club gives Hertie School students the opportunity to engage in an informative discussion in an expressly informal setting, without the rigidity created by the presence of media representatives and other third parties. It poses a unique opportunity to gain first-hand experience from a top-level practitioner.
We look forward to seeing you in the Forum! Refreshments will be provided at the end of the event.
If you wish to attend, please register. This event is open to students, faculty, and alumni of the Hertie School.
