The Empire Study Group

In our monthly meeting we explore the United States’ global interests and burdens. Each session focuses on a different article or topic. You will be able to share your experiences as well as your thoughts on a particular subject and reading. Our lively discussions always lead to interesting and surprising new insights.

We meet at the DAZ on the second Friday of each month at 17.00. Just drop by one of our sessions – newcomers are welcome!

Admission: 4 euros, free for DAZ members.
