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 digitally, once a month on Fridays at 19:00. Newcomers are always welcome – just sign up in advance (see event details)!

Please see below for reading material and find the exact dates of our next sessions on this page as well.
