BMW Center for German and European Studies
Annual Report 2010-‐2012
The Edmund A. Walsh School of Foreign Service Georgetown University
I am pleased to present the combined 2010-‐2011 and 2011-‐
2012 Annual Report of the BMW Center for German and European Studies of the Edmund A. Walsh School of Foreign Service, Georgetown University. In the pages that follow, you will find words and images depicting the broad range of activities carried out in and by the Center during the past two years, which have been in in many ways quite typical for the Center community, full of promise, ambition, and accomplishment. In other ways, though, they were very special. Most notably, we celebrated the twentieth anniversary of the Center's founding in the fall of 2010 with a series of events and a gala reception in October. On the occasion of the reception, I was asked by the SFS Office of Communications for a comment: The decision 20 years ago to create a set of demanding academic degree programs with the original gift from the German government has paid dividends beyond all expectations. The BMW Center has become a magnet for talented young people seeking to deepen their understanding of Europe and to integrate that knowledge with practical skills. At the same time, the Center has generated strong impulses at Georgetown and within Washington, D.C. that have, in no small way, helped to maintain and even strengthen transatlantic ties during challenging times. A second highlight of this period is the appointment of a new core faculty member, Dr. Anna von der Goltz. She adds new teaching and research dimensions in modern German history to the BMW Center, and we were thrilled to welcome her to the Hilltop when she arrived from the UK at the start of the spring 2012 semester. During the past two decades, the BMW Center has established itself as the premier center of its kind in North America. The Center's faculty, staff, and students stand before a future that is both bright and exciting. And so, on behalf of the BMW Center community, I would like to express our warm and sincere thanks to the BMW Group for its generous financial support and wise counsel. Sincerely yours,
Jeffrey J. Anderson Graf Goltz Professor and Director BMW Center for German and European Studies 3
BMW Center Events Program
BMW Center events are intended to enrich the study programs of our graduate students and at the same time to connect the University campus to the broader policy world, both in Washington, D.C. and in Europe. In the two academic years since 2010, the BMW Center hosted 60 public events, ranging from large-‐scale, multi-‐day policy and academic conferences to formal addresses by visiting heads of state to intimate luncheon lectures by academics. A complete list of events organized in 2010-‐2011 and 2011-‐2012 can be found in the appendix.
Mikheil Saakashvili, President of Georgia Gaston Hall, Georgetown University, February 2, 2012

Each year the Center showcases a special theme in European studies. During the fall 2010 semester, the programmatic focus was on the 20th anniversary of German unification. The centerpiece of this program was a partnership with the Breakthrough Art Organization’s exhibit "20 Years After German Unification – Critical Perspectives of Berlin Artists". Related events included a one-‐day symposium held on October 12, 2010, entitled “German Unification at Twenty Years”; for a complete list of this special events program as well as those in 2011-‐2012, see the appendix.
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 has provided support for the annual Graduate Student Conference in 2011, “A Changing Europe: Looking Back and Moving Forward” and in 2012, “EU External Relations in the Post-‐Lisbon Era”. ACES also provided support for a conference hosted by the Center’s DAAD Visiting Professor, Asiye Kaya, entitled “The 50th Anniversary of Turkish Migration to Germany: (Re)Considering the Last 50 Years of Migration and Current Immigration Policies in Germany”. French Embassy Network of Centers of Excellence On May 4th, 2012, BMW Center Director Jeffrey Anderson signed a memorandum of understanding with the French Embassy that admitted the Center -‐-‐ and by extension the School of Foreign Service at Georgetown -‐-‐ into the French Embassy Network of Centers of Excellence in the United States. Through this partnership, the BMW Center will augment its event programming relating to France and the Francophone world. Moreover, the agreement also provides for the creation of a graduate student internship with the French Senate in Paris.
German Politics and Society
The Center houses the editorial offices of German Politics and Society, an interdisciplinary journal published by Berghahn Books. Executive editor Jeffrey Anderson and managing editor Eric Langenbacher are upbeat about the journal's performance and trajectory. In addition to scheduled publications, GP&S published a number of special issues during this period: The Berlin Wall after Fifty Years: 1961-‐2011 (Summer 2011); Cosmopolitanism and the Study of German Politics (Autumn 2011); and Assessing the Consequences of the 1999 German Citizenship Act (Spring 2012). Copies of the journal’s tables of contents from the past two years can be found in the appendix. Looking forward, several special issues are under review, including one on the Élysée Treaty and another on Turkish migration that stems from a conference in Autumn 2011 commemorating the 50th anniversary of migration to Germany from Turkey.
Visiting Faculty Prince of Asturias Distinguished Visiting Professor of Spanish Studies Professor Josep Colomer, the tenth Prince of Asturias Distinguished Visiting Professor of Spanish Studies, was appointed to the School of Foreign Service in 2010-‐2011, and remained at Georgetown for a second term in 2011-‐2012. Dr. Colomer is a Research Professor in Political Science at the Higher Council for Scientific Research (CSIC) in Barcelona. The BMW Center is pleased to announce that Professor Clara Ponsati, Research Professor and Director of the Institute of Economic Analysis at the Higher Council for Scientific Research (CSIC), has been appointed as the Prince of Asturias Distinguished Visiting Professor for 2012-‐2013.
Tenth Anniversary of the Price of Asturias Chair
We would like to take this opportunity once again to express our sincere thanks to His Royal Highness Prince Felipe de Borbón y Grecia and to Endesa S.A. for their generous support of Spanish studies at Georgetown University. The 10th Anniversary of the Chair was celebrated at a special ceremony held in Madrid in the Fall of 2010; to mark the occasion, Endesa commissioned a special publication: Spain in America: The First Decade of the Prince of Asturias Chair in Spanish Studies at Georgetown University (Fundacion Endesa, 2010). The publication highlights the invaluable contributions of all of the previous holders of the Chair, each of whom dedicated one or more years to teaching, researching, and enhancing US-‐Spanish academic relations at the Edmund A. Walsh School of Foreign Service: • Roberto Garvía (2008-‐2010) • Albert Carreras (2007-‐2008) • Xavier Coller (2005-‐2007) • Miguel Jerez Mir (2004-‐2005) • Leandro Prados de la Escosura (2003-‐2004) • Joan Subirats (Spring 2003) • Francisco José Llera (Fall 2002) • José M.

Italian Fulbright Visiting Professor
The BMW Center for German and European Studies and the Italian Department signed a new agreement with the Italian Fulbright Commission in 2010 and hosted the first jointly appointed Fulbright professor, Barbara Curli, in Fall 2010. Professor Curli (Università degli Studi della Calabria), holds degrees from the Università di Perugia, the Istituto Universitario Europeo, and the Johns Hopkins University. Her research focuses on contemporary Italian and European history, international economic relationships, and working women. Daniele Checchi of the University of Milan joined us as the Italian Fulbright Professor in the Fall of 2011. Professor Checchi’s research interests focus on the economics of education, intergenerational mobility, labor market institutions, and union density.
Visiting Scholars Each year, the Center receives many requests from scholars who seek affiliation with the BMW Center while undertaking their research in the nation’s capital. Over the last two years, the Center welcomed approximately 20 visiting scholars hailing from France, Germany, Khazakstan, Spain, and the United States. They participated in lectures and symposia, made use of Georgetown University research facilities, and discussed their research with faculty and students.
DAAD Visiting Professor/Konrad Adenauer Visiting Professor In 2009, the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) agreed to provide matching funding for the creation of a 5-‐year DAAD Visiting Professorship (Gastdozentur) to supplement temporarily the Adenauer Endowment payout. Professor Asiye Kaya from the University of Applied Sciences Bielefeld joined the BMW Center in the Spring of 2011. In fall 2012, Professor Kaya organized a major conference on “The 50th Anniversary of Migration from Turkey to Germany: (Re)Considering the Last 50 Years of Migration and Current Immigration Policies in Germany,” held at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace on October 26-‐28, 2011 (program can be found in the appendix). Papers from this conference are under review for a special issue in German Politics and Society. This conference was made possible by a remarkably broad collaboration of funders, and we gratefully acknowledge their contributions: The German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) The American Institute for Contemporary German Studies (AICGS) Heinrich Böll Stiftung Goethe-‐Institute Friedrich-‐Ebert-‐Stiftung American Consortium on European Union Studies (ACES) Institute for the Study of International Migration, Georgetown University German Marshall Fund Center for Eurasian, Russian and East European Studies, Georgetown University Institute for Turkish Studies, Georgetown University
Academic Programs Graduating Classes of 2011 and 2012
2011 MAGES Graduates at the Austrian Embassy
2012 MAGES Graduates at the British Embassy
The MAGES classes of 2011 and 2012 each consisted of 20 students from Bulgaria, Finland, Germany, Kyrgyzstan, Latvia, the Netherlands, Poland, 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, Danish, French, Italian, Latvian, Romanian, Russian, Spanish, and Turkish.
MAGES Admissions Overview Spring 2011 and Spring 2012 In Spring 2011, there were 58 applications; 39 were admitted (67%), 20 enrolled, and three deferred their admission to fall 2012. For Spring 2012, there were 50 applications; 39 were admitted (78%), 19 enrolled, and two deferred their admission to Fall 2013. Applicants to the MAGES program applied to 68 other schools and programs. Our biggest competitors were George Washington University’s Elliot School of International Affairs, Johns Hopkins University’s School of Advanced International Studies (SAIS), and American University’s School of International Service (SIS). Applicants also considered Columbia University, Tufts University, University of Chicago, and Georgetown University’s Master of Science in Foreign Service. Applicants learned about the BMW Center through web searches (27%), undergraduate advisors/faculty (19%), graduate admissions fairs (7%), and MAGES alumni (11%). The MAGES class of 2013 consists of 20 students from Germany, Romania, Bulgaria, France, and the United States. Some of the more well-‐known universities and colleges represented in the applicant pool include Mount Holyoke College, Sarah Lawrence College, Wellesley College, and West Point. Students in the class of 2013 entered with an average of two years of work experience. The MAGES class of 2014 consists of 19 students from the Czech Republic, United Kingdom, Germany, India, Turkey, Ukraine, and the United States. Students in the class of 2014 held undergraduate degrees from well-‐known places such as the University of Pennsylvania, Wellesley College, and the United States Naval Academy, and they entered with an average of two years of work experience.
Dual Degree MAGES Students One student is enrolled in the dual MAGES/German Ph.D. program (Class of 2013), one student is enrolled in the dual MAGES/History Ph.D. program (Class of 2013), and one student is enrolled in the dual MAGES/Government Ph.D. program (Class of 2014). One student in the Class of 2013 and two students in the Class of 2014 are enrolled in the BSFS/MAGES dual degree program.
MAGES/Undergraduate Students The European Studies Certificate program for undergraduates in the School of Foreign Service and the College successfully graduated three students in the spring of 2011 and three in the spring of 2012. The BMW Center offered courses to undergraduates in the fields of political economy, cultural studies, government, and history.
Internships MAGES students are encouraged to hold internships while at Georgetown, especially during the summer between their first and second years of study. In 2010-‐12, students held internships in Washington, 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 to give our students the best internship experiences possible. The program aims to provide employers with high 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 included BMW AG, the Center for European Policy Analysis, the Friedrich Ebert Stiftung, and the German Marshall Fund of the United States. In addition to our Signature Internship Program, many students find internships on their own. Here is a sampling of places our students interned in 2010-‐12: American Institute for Contemporary German Studies Atlantic Partnership Amnesty International Avascent Council on Foreign Relations Defense Intelligence Agency Embassy of Liechtenstein European Parliament Liaison Office EU Delegation Japanese Center for International Finance Office of the United States Trade Representative United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees Vital Voices
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 2010-‐12, 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.
Alumni Graduate Placement The MAGES program graduated 20 students in 2011 and 20 students in 2012. Five graduates from the Class of 2011 were finalists for the prestigious Presidential Management Fellows (PMF) program. Three of the five accepted the fellowship. The PMF program was founded to attract outstanding graduate students to careers in the federal service. Students nominated by their university programs go through a rigorous selection process; the finalists are invited to go to a PMF job fair where offices of the Federal Government recruit future employees. Finalists who are placed in jobs have assignments in offices handling domestic and international issues, technology, science, health, criminal justice, and other fields. Students are chosen based on the following: breadth and quality of accomplishments, capacity for leadership, and commitment to a career in the analysis and management of public policies and programs. Two graduates from the Class of 2011 and three graduates from the Class of 2012 were finalists 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, each customized to the fellow’s professional expertise, and attend three seminars across Europe with key decision-‐ makers from the public and private sectors. Fellows are recruited from business administration, journalism, law, public policy, and closely related fields. Other graduates from 2011 and 2012 are at the following organizations/institutions: Artic Institute Avascent Bertelsmann Foundation Deloitte Institute for the Study of International Migration Siemens Oxford University U.S. Department of State Highlights 2011 MAGES graduate Malte Humpert is the founder and executive director of The Artic Institute, a non-‐profit dedicated to building knowledge and expertise on the Artic Region. An article written by Mr. Humpert was cited in the September 1, 2012 issue of The Economist. 2010 MAGES graduate Eniola Mafe was named one of the “99 under 33” most influential foreign policy professionals by the Diplomatic Courier and Young Professionals in Foreign 15
Policy. Ms. Mafe is the Africa Program Manager at Vital Voices Global Partnership. She focuses on economic development, organizational development, and entrepreneurship, and is the program manager for the Africa Businesswomen’s Network (ABWN), a partnership among local African businesswomen’s organizations that enhances the management, business development, and leadership skills of businesswomen.
CGES Alumni Association (CGESAA) The Alumni Association continues to play an active role in the Center. Alumni planned a variety of events throughout the 2010-‐2011 and 2011-‐2012 academic years to support students’ professional development. CGESAA also 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 2011 and 2012, 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 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 alumni assessment of finalists’ Master’s Projects. The winner of the 2011 Jill Hopper Award was Michael McKeon, whose project was titled “Doctrinal Activism through Popular Legitimacy: An Analysis of the European Court of Justice’s Relationship with the European Citizenry”. Susan Fratzke was the winner of the award in 2012, and her project was titled “Civic Participation Among Kurdish Migrants in Germany”. Presentation of the 2011 Jill Hopper Award to Presentation of the 2012 Jill Hopper Award to Michael McKeon Susan Fratzke In 2012, the BMW Center launched a new Alumni outreach initiative to reconnect with the program’s alumni, especially those based in Europe, and enlisted the support and assistance of the CGESAA. Together, CGESAA and the senior leadership of the Center put together three events that brought together over 60 alumni in the US and Europe. 16
The initiative kicked off on May 22 in Washington, D.C. with a reception at the Hillyer Art Gallery that featured a talk about the relationship between the US, Europe, and China given by Steven Hill, author of Europe’s Promise and co-‐founder of FairVote. In June, Center Director, Jeffrey Anderson, and CGESAA President, Zachary Wynne, traveled to Berlin, Germany to host a reception at the Soho House, which was attended by alumni based in Berlin, Brussels, Munich, Hamburg, and several other European cities. This was followed by a more informal Germany vs. Denmark Euro Cup viewing dinner in Frankfurt, Germany, that was attended by locally based alumni. We extend special thanks to Brent Goff (’98) in Berlin and Chris Porter (‘98) in Frankfurt for their help in coordinating these successful events. Given the extremely positive response received after the events in D.C. and Germany, the Center plans to work with CGESAA to put together more outreach events on the West Coast in the US and again in Europe in the coming academic year.

Governance and Administration Advisory Council At the 2010 Advisory Council meeting, which coincided with festivities marking the BMW Center's 20th anniversary, representatives from BMW AG announced the creation of a MAGES summer internship position in the Government Relations Department at the company's headquarters in Munich. To date, two MAGES students, David Gregg (Summer 2011) and Lars Miethke (Summer 2012) have participated in this exciting new program. The Advisory Council was briefed on the academic and administrative status of the Center and discussed priorities and challenges, including the search for a new history faculty member following Professor Chickering’s retirement, the state of the Endowment and the University’s austerity measures, and the future of the Chair in Political Economy. Professor Jeffrey Anderson asked for recommendations for new Advisory Council Members. The BMW Center for German and European Studies is pleased to present three new members, starting in fall 2012: Cathryn Clüver, Caroline King, and Jeffrey Thinnes.
Executive Committee The BMW Center’s governing body, the Executive Committee, consists of the Center Director, the MAGES Director, the Dean of the School of Foreign Service, Center faculty, faculty representatives of departments with which the Center has joint degree programs, and a MAGES student elected by his or her peers. The Executive Committee advises the Center Director on programmatic and curricular policies, and facilitates cooperation among the various parts of the University associated with the Center. The Committee worked on a variety of issues, including implementing the learning goals and assessment mechanisms developed in preparation for Georgetown University’s Middle States accreditation review. Additionally, the Committee made a decision after careful consideration to revise the MAGES curriculum by reducing the number of interdisciplinary electives from three (3) to two (2). This change allows students to increase the number of free electives in their tailored programs of study, thus allowing greater flexibility in their area of concentration.
The BMW Center is pleased to welcome two new faculty members: Assistant Professor Anna von der Goltz (SFS/History) and Visiting DAAD Professor Asiye Kaya. Dr. von der Goltz joined the BMW CGES core faculty as an Assistant Professor in January 2012, filling the position left vacant after Professor Roger Chickering’s retirement. She holds a joint appointment in the School of Foreign Service and the History Department. From 2006 until 2011, she held a Junior Research Fellowship at Magdalen College, Oxford. Before coming to Georgetown, she was a Leverhulme Early Career Fellow and Affiliated Lecturer in the Faculty of History at the University of Cambridge. Her work on the Hindenburg myth won the Wiener Library's Fraenkel Prize in 2008 and the German History Society's and Royal Historical Society's Joint Essay Prize in 2006. 18
Professor Kaya joined the BMW Center in January 2011, and her teaching and research focuses on migration theories and comparative migration policies/politics in Europe and North America, social inequality, minority and majority figurations, formation of belonging, gender and intergenerational relations, qualitative and interpretative research methods and methodologies – especially biographical research. She is associated with the Center for Transdisciplinary Gender Studies, Humboldt University Berlin, and is a non-‐resident fellow in the program "Society, Culture and Politics" at the American institute for Contemporary German Studies (AICGS). She received her PhD in Social Science from Georg-‐August-‐University in Göttingen-‐Germany in 2006. After a long and productive affiliation, Kathryn Olesko opted to leave the Center and accept an invitation to join the core faculty of the Science and Technology in International Affairs (STIA) program at Georgetown University. We are grateful to Kathy for her many years of dedicated service to the Center and wish her well in her new endeavors with STIA. We would also like to acknowledge the hard work of MAGES Supervisor of Academic Programs Marie Gschwindt de Gyor, who left CGES in August 2011, as well as recognize the efforts of Supervisor of Academic Programs Cristina Dinu, who finished a one-‐year academic term with CGES in May 2012.
New Faces in Administration We would like to extend a warm welcome to several new members to the administrative team in the Center. Tyler Lopez, our Program Assistant, came to us in July 2011 from the Women's Learning Partnership, an international women's human rights organization based in Bethesda, MD. He holds a B.A. in International Studies from Virginia Tech. Phoebe Wood, our Events and Publications Coordinator, joined us in August 2011. She previously worked for the Bretton Woods Committee in D.C., and she holds a B.A. in International Relations from Boston University.
