In his much sought-after lectures on topics related to politics, foreign policy and geopolitics, Sigmar Gabriel convinces with clear words and clear positions.

Our speaker Claudia Major heads the security policy research group at the renowned Stiftung Wissenschaft und Politik (SWP) in Berlin and is one of the most sought-after security policy experts in Germany. She gives lectures on topics of security and defence policy in Germany, Europe and in the transatlantic context. In Simone Menne's podcast "Die Boss", Major emphasised how drastic this war is for the order in Europe and the world, which Chancellor Scholz has described as a "turning point in time".
