Nine students from the Bush School of Government and Public Service recently traveled to Germany to present research findings to their first-ever international capstone client, Bosch Stiftung, a German foundation known for its work with the natural and social sciences.

The capstone, entitled “Looking Eastward: Enhancing Trilateral Relations: Germany, the US, and China,” was coordinated by faculty member Gabriela Martin Thornton, who received a grant of 13,100 euros from Bosch Stiftung to fund the work.

The capstone focused on enhancing trilateral relations between Germany, the United States and China by answering research questions related to the Asian pivot and power transitions toward Asia.

“The Asian pivot is a switch in U.S. foreign policy from the Atlantic area toward Asia,” Thornton said. “Europeans want to know what the consequences of the pivot mean for Europe, and more broadly for transatlantic relations.”
