bout gmf
Te German Marshall Fund of the United States (GMF) is a non-partisan American public policy and grant-makinginstitution dedicated to promoting greater cooperation and understanding between North America and Europe.GMF does this by supporting individuals and institutions working on transatlantic issues, by convening leaders to discussthe most pressing transatlantic themes, and by examining ways in which transatlantic cooperation can address a variety of global policy challenges. In addition, GMF supports a number of initiatives to strengthen democracies.Founded in 1972 through a gi from Germany as a permanent memorial to Marshall Plan assistance, GMF maintains astrong presence on both sides of the Atlantic. In addition to its headquarters in Washington, DC, GMF has seven oces inEurope: Berlin, Bratislava, Paris, Brussels, Belgrade, Ankara, and Bucharest.
bout gmf’s Eooi oi rora
Te Economic Policy Program is an initiative of GMF dedicated to promoting cooperation between the United States andEurope on domestic and international economic policies as vital instruments of global prosperity, especially for the poorand those aected by shis in the global economy.Te United States and Europe account for more than 40 percent of world economic activity, close to $20 trillion in goodsand services on an annual basis. Given the size and importance of this relationship, GMF’s Economic Policy Programseeks to ensure that the benets of globalization are distributed equitably and fairly. Trough in-depth research, targetedgrantmaking, strategic convening, and outreach to key policymakers and the media, the program supports transatlanticleadership at the critical nexus of economic policy, trade, development assistance, and management of domestic sectors suchas agriculture.
