"We are no wiser than the Europeans who saw democracy yield to fascism, Nazism, or communism in the twentieth century. Our one advantage is that we might learn from their experience. Now is a good time to do so."

About Us

Launched in the fall of 2018 by the Munich Chapter of the Yale Club of Germany,

Munich Dialogues on Democracy is an English-language lecture series featuring world-class experts, with events that foster and support the values of liberal democracy and its institutions. 

Our all-volunteer team is led by founder Bartley Grosserichter, a Munich-based Yale alumna, in cooperation with our main partners, Amerikahaus Munich and the Yale Club of Germany. 

Our aim is to educate, engage and empower our audiences to think critically, and act deliberately, to keep democracy around the world healthy. 

If you like what we are doing, please consider supporting us with a tax-deductible donation.
