Annual Report 2012-2013
Letter from the Director I am delighted to present the 2012-‐2013 Annual Report of the BMW Center for German and European Studies of the Edmund A. Walsh School of Foreign Service, Georgetown University. The comforting rhythm of university life comes through strongly in these pages. The changing and unpredictable “real world” – US presidential elections and the Eurozone crisis -‐ also makes its presence felt. Taken together, it all underscores how the BMW Center continues to serve as a focal point at Georgetown for vibrant and sustained research, learning, and discourse on Europe, and to play an important role within the transatlantic networks linking Washington, DC to Europe. The students, faculty, visitors, and staff at the BMW Center are proud to be a part of this ongoing venture. 2012-‐2013 was a year of dynamism for the Center. Professor Abraham Newman took over as MAGES Director, and we welcomed a new Supervisor of Academic Programs, Julia Sylla, onto the senior staff. Abe and Julia have worked together to introduce many new and exciting innovations into curricular planning, career services, and recruiting. The leadership team in the Center devoted a great deal of time and effort to external fundraising, with impressive results – over $50,000 in external grants for each of the next two calendar years (2013 and 2014), and the prospect of a one-‐time gift of over $1,000,000 to support event programming in the Center. And finally, the BMW Center launched a year-‐ long effort to reach out to its 350 alumni, hosting activities and social events in Washington, DC, New York, Chicago, San Francisco, Los Angeles, and Berlin. As the BMW Center approaches the mid-‐point of its third decade of existence, we remain proud of its past and excited about its future. Without the generous support of the BMW Group over the past 13 years, none of this would be possible. I would also like to take this opportunity to express my personal thanks to Craig Helsing, who stepped down this spring as the company’s vice president for government relations here in the nation’s capital. It was a true pleasure to work with Craig these past eleven years – he was always a source of unwavering support and wise counsel. I look forward to continuing this working partnership with BMW’s new person in DC, Bryan Jacobs. Sincerely yours,
Jeffrey J. Anderson Graf Goltz Professor and Director BMW Center for German and European Studies
Partnerships The BMW Center for German and European Studies w ould like to thank our generous partners who have contributed to our continued strength and growth as the premier center of its kind in North America. BMW Over 10 years ago, BMW secured the existence of our Center with a ten million dollar gift – the single largest gift in Georgetown’s history at the time. Today this gift helps the BMW Center for German and European studies maintain its competitive edge by supporting important faculty research, funding events and lectures focusing on interdisciplinary and emerging transatlantic issues, and most importantly, providing student scholarships. 89% of our students received a portion of merit-‐based aid this past academic year and all are extremely grateful to BMW for their generosity. “Without a merit scholarship from the BMW Center, I would have never been able to study at Georgetown. Every day, I cherish the opportunity to be in this incredibly enriching environment and know that m y studies at the Walsh S chool of Foreign Service have already changed my life beyond any expectations. For that, I will be forever grateful and will do all I can to give back to the society and help those who are in a similar position as I was.” Jakub Hlavka Czech Republic MAGES Class of 2014 Our ongoing relationship with BMW also provided a significant opportunity for second-‐year student Lars Mietkhe, who was selected as the second recipient for the BMW signature internship at the Munich headquarters in summer 2012.
"Having applied to graduate school with the intention to combine my prior experience as a business student with the political and diplomatic expertise taught at Georgetown’s School of Foreign Service, this internship provided an ideal opportunity to apply these two fields at the juncture of business and government. The topics of concern in my role as intern for the government affairs department were strongly oriented on current EU, as well as German, legislation regarding e-‐mobility, CO2 emission policy, global trade regulation, as well as the responsibility of multinational corporations in the transatlantic and global progress on sustainable technological innovation.” Lars Mietkhe Germany MAGES class of 2013
Finally, for the second consecutive year, we were honored to co-‐host a successful event with the BMW Stiftung Herbert Quandt entitled, “The U.S. Pivot to Asia and the European Response -‐ Can Free Trade Save the Transatlantic Relationship?” in April 2013. German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) The BMW Center for German and European Studies continues to partner with the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) to co-‐fund Professor Asiye Kaya for a five-‐year DAAD visiting professorship (Gastdozentur). We are also pleased to report that the BMW Center was awarded two competitive grants from the DAAD in 2013 that enhanced faculty exchanges between German universities and Georgetown University and supported academic research on Germany and Europe. The first is a multi-‐project grant from the DAAD New York office focusing on “Promoting German and European Studies in North America.” Projects funded for 2013 included:
Two-‐day symposium sponsored by the German department under the direction of Professor Friederike Eigler entitled “German-‐Polish Border Regions in Literature, Film, and Historiography: Trans-‐National Approaches to National Histories” on April 5-‐6, 2013. BMW Center annual Graduate Student Conference on February 8-‐9, 2013; Three-‐day conference convened by BMW Center professor Anna von der Goltz and Britta Waldschmidt-‐Nelson from the German Historical Institute on “Inventing the “Silent Majority”: Conservative Mobilization in Western Europe and the United States in the 1960s and 1970s” on April 1 8-‐20, 2013.
The second grant funded an eight-‐day student study tour in May 2013. A group of 13 students, seven from the BMW Center for German and European Studies and six from other DAAD Centers for German and European Studies around the world (China, Russia, Netherlands, and Israel), traveled to Berlin to study 'Politics and Praxis of Diversity in the Federal Republic of Germany.' The interdisciplinary approach to the theory, praxis, politics, and policies of diversity in Germany enabled the masters students to experience first-‐ hand how diversity is conceived, politically constructed, practiced, and experienced in Berlin. Students attended lectures, seminars, workshops, cultural activities and talks with German and international academics, community organizers, local officials, politicians, and students from the German partner universities. The trip was conceived and supervised by Asiye Kaya, DAAD Visiting Professor at the BMW Center, in collaboration with Prof. Dr. Iman Attia, faculty member of Alice Salomon (ASH) Hochschule in Berlin and Prof. Dr. Maureen Maisha Eggers, Hochschule-‐Magdeburg in Stendal. American Consortium on European Union Studies The BMW Center is a member of the American Consortium on European Union Studies (ACES), an EU-‐sponsored network of area universities involved in research and outreach relating to European integration and transatlantic relations. The BMW Center participates in ACES by including it as a co-‐sponsor in many events relating to the European Union. ACES provided support this year for the 17th Annual Graduate Student Conference in 2013, “Europe’s Vision Twenty Years After Maastricht”.
ACES also awards all graduating MAGES students with a Certificate in European Union Studies. In 2013, the nineteen graduating MAGES students received ACES certificates for completing five Europe-‐focused courses. French Embassy Network of Centers of Excellence The 2012-‐2013 academic year was the Center’s first full year as a member of the French Network of Centers of Excellence in the United States. The partnership allows the Center to expand its event programming related to France and the Francophone world, and the agreement also provides for the creation of a graduate student internship with the French Senate in Paris. The Center held two events this year in conjunction with the partnership. These events included a lecture with Olivier Wieviorka, Senior Fellow at the Institut Universitaire de France, and a roundtable discussion for the 50th anniversary of the Élysée Treaty featuring a keynote speech with H.E. François Delattre, Ambassador of France to the United States. The funds also supported a conference organized by the Program for Jewish Civilization entitled “Secularism on the Edge: the Church and the State in the United States, France and Israel” on February 20-‐23, 2013 and a history conference convened by Professor Anna von der Goltz on conservative mobilization in Western Europe and the United States in the 1960s and 1970s on April 18-‐20, 2013. Prince of A sturias Chair in Spanish Studies Professor Clara Ponsati, Research Professor and Director of the Institute of Economic Analysis at the Higher Council for Scientific Research (CSIC) in Barcelona, was appointed as the eleventh Prince of Asturias Distinguished Visiting Professor for 2012-‐ 2013. Her current research explores group formation under majoritarian institutions to understand the causes and effects of meritocracy and egalitarianism in the performance and stability of democratic organizations. The Asturias Chair and related event activities are funded by the generosity of the Endesa Corporation. In addition to hosting prominent guest lecturers in her classes and convening a roundtable on “New States in the EU,” Professor Ponsati also organized a public address by Dr. Andreu Mas-‐Colell, the Minister of Economy and Knowledge of the Government of Catalonia, who outlined the regional government's current economic situation and linked this to broader questions concerning Catalonia's future. During the Q&A, exchanges focused on the issue of Catalan independence, as well as the wisdom of
austerity programs at a time of high and rising unemployment. The event drew a sizable audience of students, faculty, friends of Georgetown, and the press. Italian Fulbright Visiting Scholar The BMW Center for German and European Studies and the Italian Department have continued their agreement with the Italian Fulbright Commission and hosted an appointed Italian Fulbright professor, Piero Graglia, in Fall 2012. Professor Graglia (Milan State University) holds degrees from the University of Florence and the University of Pavia. His research interests focus on the history of European integration, particularly regarding problems relating to the federal approach and functional approach in movements, parties, and European governments between 1947-‐1992. On November 27, 2012, Professor Graglia gave a lecture to students on “The European Debate on the Stability Treaty and the Perspectives of Further Development of the Union.”
Center Programs The multitude and diversity of events at the BMW Center enrich the MAGES program, and provide important impulses for intellectual discourse more broadly within the School of Foreign Service. In 2012-‐13, the Center hosted 36 public academic and policy-‐related events, ranging from lunchtime lectures to multi-‐day conferences. As in past years, the core faculty chose a salient theme for the Center’s special events series, shining a spotlight on the changing meaning and role of the traditional left-‐right political spectrum in a six-‐ part mini-‐series entitled “Europe: What’s Left? What’s Right?” (see event flyer) In addition to the events with our partners, other notable events this year included a discussion with Dr. Gregor Gysi, Chairman of the DIE LINKE Party, on November 16, 2012, “Taming Modernity: European Experiences in the Twentieth Century” with Konrad Jarausch on March 25, 2013, and “In the Smoke of the Firebombs: The Asylum Seeker in German Post-‐War History” with Ulrich Herbert on April 4 , 2013.

Alumni Networking In the spring of 2012, the BMW Center launched a campaign to reach out more effectively and consistently to MAGES alumni. Working closely with the CGES Alumni Association (CGESAA), the senior leadership of the Center organized three events – Washington, DC, Berlin– during May and June that attracted over 60 MAGI. As the MAGES alumni base grows and matures, it has become an increasingly significant resource for the Center, serving as a source of information about job market trends as well as career development and counseling, and it grows in relevance as a professional network for new MAGES graduates. The BMW Center’s alumni outreach initiative is intended to facilitate these developments, and we have been very pleased and encouraged by the results so far. During the fall 2012 semester, the Center’s leadership team hosted events in New York, Chicago, San Francisco, and Los Angeles, reaching

a total of 35 alumni and friends of the Center. A notable highlight of the fall series was the chance to see former CGES Director Samuel Barnes and his wife Ann, who attended a dinner in San Francisco. In the second half of the academic year, the Center put together a wine-‐tasting in May for the alumni based in Washington, DC (far and away our largest concentration of graduates – see the table on this page), and in June we returned to the Soho House in Berlin to host an event for many of our alumni based in Europe. While in Berlin, we worked with the CGESAA Overseas Alumni Coordinator, Chris Porter, to gather a group of alumni to discuss professional development opportunities for current MAGES students. Ideas from the working group included resume review, informational interviews, and internship opportunities. The Berlin trip was also an occasion to connect with our partners in the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) and in the Hertie School of Governance.

Scholarships MAGES students are automatically considered for merit scholarships as part of the admissions process. Subject to the availability of funds, additional merit-‐ based scholarships may be awarded after each semester of the program. 89% of MAGES students received a scholarship from the MAGES program, ranging from ¼ tuition awards to full tuition scholarships in 2012-‐2013. The BMW Center has also established a fund to support summer research and professional development opportunities for enrolled students. This fund is named after a founding faculty member of the Center, Professor Gregory Flynn, in recognition of his passionate devotion to teaching and to his students. The Flynn Program is intended to enable students to pursue summer activities such as internships, language study, research projects or a combination thereof. In 2012, seventeen MAGES students received Flynn Grant funding to support summer internships and research ranging from internships with the U.S. Department of Defense-‐European Policy Directorate to the European Parliament Liaison Office in Brussels and Strasburg. Curricular Initiatives In 2011, the MAGES Executive Committee enacted a change in the curriculum guidelines for the MAGES program that reduced the number of interdisciplinary electives that MAGES students are required to take from three courses to two courses. The total number of required credits remained the same, so MAGES students are therefore required to take eight elective courses as part of their concentration. Students have responded well to this curricular change and enjoy the increased flexibility to form their areas of expertise. At the spring 2012 faculty retreat, a change was proposed to the MAGES oral examinations that all students are required to pass before graduation. An updated format for the exams will encourage students to provide an opening statement that relates to the CGES event theme of the year and to explore how it relates to the interdisciplinary nature of the MAGES program. The new oral examination format will be optional for the MAGES Class of 2014 (they may choose to take the exam in the new format in fall 2013 or the previous format in spring 2014).
Professional Development Events The MAGES program integrates professional development into the academic experience throughout the two years of the program. Students are required to meet certain professional development goals each semester, including meeting with representatives of the Graduate Career Development Center to develop a personal career development plan, having their resume reviewed, and completing informational interviews with professionals in the careers that they hope to pursue after the MAGES program. CGES organizes events for each cohort to help them stay on track with their professional development, and the Center also brings in alumni and other professionals to network and speak on panels about their careers and ways for MAGES students to successfully enter the professional marketplace. CGES hosts several information sessions on prestigious fellowship opportunities such as the Bosch Fellowship and the German Chancellor Fellowship, as well as an information session on pursuing a PhD. Internships MAGES students are encouraged to hold internships while at Georgetown, especially during the summer between their first and second years of study. In 2012-‐2013, MAGES students held internships in W ashington, D.C. and abroad. CGES runs a program with select employers called the MAGES Signature Internship Program, which gives us an opportunity to strengthen partnerships within the transatlantic community in Washington, D.C. and give our students the best internship experiences possible. The program aims to provide employers with quality, reliable graduate student interns whenever they are needed. In turn, employers agree to give interns a valuable experience to enrich their professional and academic development. The MAGES Signature Internship Program employers include BMW AG, UNESCO-‐IIEP, and the Bank of New York Mellon Frankfurt.
In addition to our Signature Internship Program, students intern at a wide variety of other organizations to complement their academic studies and professional goals. Below is a sample of other organizations where MAGES students interned in 2012-‐2013: Atlantic Council Bertelsmann Foundation Center for European Policy Analysis Cultural Vistas Embassy of France to the United States European Parliament Liaison Office (EPLO) German Parliament German Marshall Fund of the United States NASA Office of the United States Trade Representative United States Department o f Commerce United States Department o f Defense United States Department o f State, Office of Public Diplomacy in the Bureau of European and Eurasian Affairs United States Department o f State, Mission to the EU
MEET EVAN GIESELMAN "This summer, I completed an internship at the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) in the Office of International and Interagency Relations (OIIR). OIIR facilitates the interactions between NASA and foreign entities, whether they be space agencies, companies, or other types of organizations, and also with other government agencies in the United States government; the two competencies often overlap. OIIR also handles the logistics of trips from NASA personnel to foreign countries and foreign nationals to the United States on NASA business. I was specifically placed with the Aeronautics and Cross-Agency Support division, which also handled the majority of NASA’s interactions with Europe, including the space agencies of individual European countries, but also with the European-wide European Space Agency. As an intern during my time at NASA, I attempted and was encouraged to experience as many different tasks and responsibilities as I could. I compiled and wrote articles for a NASA publication entitled Global Reach, which detailed NASA projects and cooperation with foreign entities over the previous four years, and included undertakings as diverse as satellites, research, and cooperation on toys and video games. I drafted Space Act agreements between NASA and foreign companies and space agencies, legally explaining the type of cooperation or facility and personnel sharing between the two entities. I also drafted letters between NASA executives and foreign entities, as well as carried out correspondence with other government agencies such as the Department of State, the Department of Defense, and the Federal Aviation Administration. Another enriching part of my time at NASA was attending events related to aerospace exploration in Washington, D.C. and at NASA. I visited and learned of NASA operations both at Headquarters, but also at the Goddard Spaceflight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland. I also had the opportunity to participate in events such as International Space Station Day on the Hill and the tour of the SpaceX Dragon Spacecraft in D.C. A particular area of focus for me during my internship was the transatlantic dialogue and cooperation between the United States and Europe, and I became more familiar with an important aspect of this relationship in the portfolio of NASA. A great part of NASA’s cooperation is with European countries, and the difficulties of the US government in dealing with the European Union and the individual nation states of Europe is reflected in NASA’s dealings with the European Space Agency and the space agencies of the individual member states. Spaceflight capability is a source of great national pride and a sign of technological competence for a nation, and many European countries therefore go to great lengths to cooperate with NASA. Firsthand experience of this aspect will be invaluable in my academic research on transatlantic diplomacy and security. I became familiar with the practices and norms of a government agency, and I established many new contacts and networks within the government and the aerospace field, which I will certainly keep in touch with in the years to come. I anticipate that the interaction between NASA and other government agencies will be particularly useful. My internship experience at NASA was extremely beneficial for me, my studies, and my career, and I also wholeheartedly enjoyed and took great interest in working at the nation’s space agency." Evan Gieselman M.A. Candidate, German and European Studies, 2013 Edmund A. Walsh School of Foreign Service Georgetown University
MEET ALLISON GIBBS This summer I interned at the Department of Defense in the office of the Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for Europe and NATO (EUR/NATO) in the European Policy Directorate. I worked 40 hours a week under the supervision of Colonel Sean Scott, acting director of European Policy. This internship exceeded all my expectations, allowed me to gain valuable professional experience, gave me the opportunity to work with and learn from an incredible group of professionals, and cemented my desire to work in the service of my country upon completing my graduate degree. As an intern in EUR/NATO I was quickly integrated into the European Policy team and treated far more like a coworker than an intern. Paired with the country director for Spain and Portugal, I was able to follow country-specific issues as they unfolded, sit in on high-level meetings, draft memos, put together position papers, and observe the delicate balancing act that is required of country directors as they juggle embassy contacts, State country teams, State desk officers, and the various US and country-specific military components. During the two weeks that the country director was on leave I was able to step in as country director and manage the portfolio on my own. The Spain and Portugal country director also came to be a wonderful mentor to me, someone who was as willing to discuss the outcomes of meetings with me as she was willing to talk about her own career path and what I might consider for my own future. In addition to working Spain and Portugal issues, I was tasked with preparing the Foreign Minister of Luxembourg’s visit to the Pentagon. From the schedule proposal that was sent up the chain, to the read ahead and talking points, to all the security and background details, to meeting the delegation and escorting them through the Pentagon on the day of the meeting, everything was tasked to me. This was an incredible exercise in organization and responsibility. I truly got to know the system in place within the Pentagon as I prepared for this meeting. My time in EUR/NATO has not only exposed me to the daily workings of the office, but has allowed me to become an integral part of them. Professionally I grew tremendously as I learned the intricacies of the Department of Defense system, how to work on a team and with partners both in the Department of Defense and within other agencies, how to draft everything from schedule proposals to memos, and how to function in an environment that is a mixture of civilian, military, and foreign nationals. Furthermore interning in EUR/NATO gave me access to an incredible group of professionals that were always happy to talk to me about their own experiences and lend professional advice. Interning in the European Policy Directorate was the best professional experience I have ever had. The time I have spent within EUR/NATO gave me crucial professional experience within the government sector and cemented my love of European security issues. This internship has shown me that it is possible to translate my academic interests into a fascinating career, a career that can be fulfilling and challenging every day. It has also exposed me to the work of the Department of Defense and given me a foothold in the European Policy Directorate. I could not be more thankful.

Career Services The BMW Center is committed to assisting students in various aspects of their job search prior to graduation. Students can use the SFS Career Development Center for career guidance, as well as the Supervisor of Academic Programs for feedback on resumes, cover letters, and mock interviews. In 2012-‐13, students had the opportunity to attend various MAGES and SFS career events, where speakers from different job sectors spoke about their career paths and gave advice to students. CGES alumni continue to provide excellent support to students in the area of professional development. Graduate Placement The MAGES program graduated 19 students in 2013. In the class were students from Bulgaria, France, Germany, Romania, and the United States. Representing the diversity of the MAGES program, students in this class pursued a wide range of concentrations from “International Business Diplomacy” to “Transatlantic Security.” Students entered MAGES with an average of two years of work experience, and most of them had worked or studied in Europe prior to matriculation. Although it is no longer mandatory for students to test in the
German language, most students chose German as one of their two MAGES languages. Students also tested in Czech, French, Italian, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, and Turkish. Two graduates from the Class of 2013, Allison Gibbs and Elizabeth Johnson, were selected for the prestigious Bosch Fellowship program. The Robert Bosch Foundation Fellowship Program is a distinguished transatlantic initiative that each year offers twenty accomplished young Americans the opportunity to complete a high-‐level professional development program in Germany. Over the course of a nine-‐month program, Bosch Fellows complete two work phases at leading German institutions, both customized to each fellow’s professional expertise, and attend three seminars with key decision-‐makers from the public and private sectors, taking place across Europe. Fellows are recruited from business administration, journalism, law, public policy and closely related fields. The Foundation awards 20 fellowships a year in the U.S., and over the last three years MAGES students have won seven of these fellowships. CGES A lumni Association (CGESAA) The Alumni Association planned a variety of events throughout the 2012-‐2013 academic year to support students’ professional development. CGESAA also
The 2013 MAGES class at the Embassy of Finland
convened regularly, held social events to bring alumni together, and showed support for the Graduate Student Conference. CGESAA members attended the MAGES Final Colloquium in April 2013 at which the second-‐year students presented their final MAGES projects. CGESAA is responsible for giving out the Jill Hopper Award at the Colloquium each year. The Alumni Association’s president, Zachary Wynne, coordinated the Hopper Award process. Created in 1999 to honor the memory of Jill Alexandra Hopper (Class of 1996), the Hopper Award recognizes dedication to academic service and scholarship. Second-‐year MAGES students are selected via a two-‐tiered process of peer nomination, and 2013 Jill Hopper Award was Robert Mevissen, whose project was titled “Dynastic Devotion and the Danube: Natural Identities in the Habsburg Empire.”

Visiting Researchers Each year, the Center receives many requests from scholars who seek affiliation with the BMW Center wile undertaking their research in the nation’s capital. We also forged a partnership for faculty to visit Georgetown through the European Commission’s Marie Curie Exchange Program, and through the Open Society Institute of the George Soros Foundation. In the upcoming academic year, we look forward to providing more opportunities for scholars to deepen their research by sponsoring two DAAD visiting research positions. We hosted eleven scholars during the 2012-‐13 Academic Year: Andreas Daum Germany/USA “Berlin, Kennedy and German-‐American Relations in the Cold War” “Alexander von Humboldt and the Emergence of the Modern World” “The Second Generation: Émigré Scholars from Germany in the Transatlantic World” Mathias Freise Germany “European Union and Civil Society” Pablo Leon Spain “Film Trade and Transatlantic Relations (Cold War), and History of American Propaganda and Public Diplomacy-‐ Franco Spain” Bakyt Ospanova Kazakhstan “European Union Actorness” Friedrich Paulsen Germany “Identification and comparative analysis of innovative practices of public governance in a German and a US city, focusing on the cooperation of and power relations between public, private-‐commercial and private non-‐ profit actors” Angela Perez Spain “Catholic Women during the 1940’s in Democracy and Dictatorship”

anniversary of the Élysée Treaty. Upcoming special issues will look at Turkish migration to Germany, German-‐Polish borderlands in culture and politics, and the 2 013 Bundestag election. Graduate Student Conference The 17th annual Graduate Student Conference took place on February 8th and 9th, 2013 and focused on “Europe’s Vision Twenty Years After Maastricht.” His Excellency João Vale de Almeida, Ambassador and Head of the Delegation of the European Union, gave a keynote address to the United States.

MAGES Master’s Projects Students are required to complete a Master’s Project to graduate from the MAGES program. Students present their MAGES project research each spring as part of the annual MAGES Colloquium. This spring, the graduating MAGES students presented their thesis research on April 26, 2013. The four panels were titled Trade, Investment, and Markets; Domestic Politics and Societies; Culture and Identity; Defense and Diplomacy; and Energy and the Environment. Each panel was moderated by a MAGES core faculty member and comments were given by a first year student who was selected to review the papers before the colloquium to generate discussion.
