Thinking Ahead For Germany: Which Reform Of State And Administration Secures The Future Of Our Democracy


Wednesday, January 31



The latest results of the PISA study are another example in a long chain of news that shows that Germany is only mediocre in many international rankings, and that it has not fully mastered many of the major systemic challenges of recent decades. The growing doubts about the effectiveness and ability of our state to act are beginning to cast a shadow over our democracy.


The event will take place under the patronage of Ralph Brinkhaus MdB as a member of the DPG and in the presence of our Managing Director for Germany & Austria, Dr. Kai Bender. It is jointly run by the Hardenberg Project and the Oliver Wyman Forum, Oliver Wyman's global research institute and think tank. It is explicitly not a commercial company event, but a civil society dialogue in the best tradition of the DPG.


We are particularly pleased that our comrades-in-arms Hans-Josef Vogel, administrative reformer and long-time mayor and district president in Arnsberg, and Philipp von der Wippel, founder & managing director at the non-profit organization ProjectTogether, will introduce the discussion with a dialogue of the generations. Philipp will take this opportunity to give us an insight into Re:Form, a recently launched alliance for the state of tomorrow.
