Ben Hodges

  • The War in the Ukraine
  • Lecture

Entire cities are destroyed, civilian facilities are targeted. Millions of people are on the run, many have been terribly harmed. One year after the Russian invasion of Ukraine, the war in Europe continues. In Germany, too, we are confronted with the events of the war every day: through the debate about arms deliveries, the suffering of the people, and also the question of energy supply.

However, the reporting is often opaque and the amount of ever new information is overwhelming. Ben Hodges, the former commander-in-chief of U.S. forces in Europe, analyzes the situation, classifies and clarifies. What are the consequences of the Russian war of aggression for Europe and the world? What new perspectives and options for action do we need to develop, what kind of rethinking is called for?

General Ben Hodges studied at the U.S. Military Academy and went through a career in the U.S. Army from lieutenant to lieutenant general. He ended his military career as commander of U.S. forces in Europe from 2014-2017. Currently, Hodges serves as an advisor to several institutions of security policy analysis.
