John J. McCloy I
John J. McCloy I was the U.S. High Commissioner to the young Federal Republic. John McCloy’s commitment to Germany's integration into Western alliances and his strong commitment to building civil society through education and science decisively paved Germany's way to a stable democracy after World War II. From 1949 to 1952, John J. McCloy and his family lived in Bad Homburg, in the immediate vicinity of the area where the Forschungskolleg Humanwissenschaften is located today.
John McCloy Transatlantic Forum
The John McCloy Transatlantic Forum facilitates and promotes exchange and conversation between academia and the public. It aims at stakeholders from politics, business, culture, and the media who are interested in transatlantic relations under the banner of a shared understanding of democracy. The impetus for the founding of the forum is an insight that has grown out of the current crises in the world, such as the Ukraine war, tensions with China, populist movements in Europe and the United States: Democratic orders cannot be taken for granted but require maintenance and development. ― The forum intends to be a place of debate that explores the forms, varieties, challenges and potentials of democracy.
The Forum belongs to the research group »Democratic Vistas. Reflections on the Atlantic World« based at Forschungskolleg Humanwissenschaften
Research focus »Democratic Vistas: Reflections on the Atlantic World«
The workshop is part of the research focus »Democratic Vistas. Reflections on the Atlantic World«, hosted by the Forschungskolleg Humanwissenschaften. The interdisciplinary group of Goethe University scholars and international and regional affiliates addresses the potentials and limits of Atlantic cooperation with regard to the future of democracy from various perspectives and disciplines.
Heads of program:
Johannes Voelz, Professor of American Studies, Goethe University, and Gunther Hellmann, Professor of Political Science, Goethe University.
