Jörn Quitzau, AGSR Fellow
AICGS is pleased to welcome Jörn Quitzau as an AICGS/GMF Fellow with the American-German Situation Room in Washington, DC, in April 2018.
Joern Quitzau (PhD, University of Hamburg) is a Senior Economist at Berenberg, Germany’s oldest owner-managed private bank. In addition, he is a lecturer at Frankfurt School of Finance & Management. He specializes in economic trend research and economic policy and has been working on several aspects of European integration for more than ten years.
During his time in Washington, Dr. Quitzau will focus his research on the question: What holds a society together? The speed at which the world is changing is causing general uncertainty and raises basic questions about national identities and modern lifestyles. Tensions within American society and in European countries are visible signs of the need for new thinking. In this heated environment, the United States and Germany are two important countries who should offer guidance and leadership. In addition, both countries can learn from one another.
