The C·A·P's Partners and Network

The C·A·Ps network, which includes a vast number of individuals and institutions, promote the regular exchange of information and expertise.
Depending on a projects scope, the C·A·P will invite external experts to contribute to a particular project. Knowledge about the profiles of decision-makers, scholars, and journalists is one of the Centers strengths.
The C·A·P also has many years of experience with convening high-level meetings. It prepared, in close cooperation with the Bertelsmann Foundation, the International Bertelsmann Forum, where heads of state, cabinet members, business leaders and opinion shapers from Europe, America and Asia meet regularly to discuss Europes internal dynamics and external relations. For years, the Kronberg Talks have helped to deepen relations among Europe, the Middle East and the United States. At the various roundtables of the Improving Responsiveness project, experts from Europe and the United States exchange opinions and expertise on key issues of transatlantic interest. The C·A·P also organizes the Allianz Summer Academy for young academic leaders in cooperation with European universities. The German Policy Dialogue for a New Generation focuses on current domestic reform debates. The fore/sight conference series, held in 2004-2005, focused on possibilities for shaping Germanys future. Over years the C·A·P organized the academic component of the program for the International Charlemagne Award (Karlspreis) in Aachen. Youth Parliaments, model games like We are the parliament provide broad learning opportunities for young people and opinion leaders.
