Stefan Schlueter, German consul general, will give a free public presentation on race and immigration issues in Europe Monday, Oct. 31, at the University of Wyoming.

Schlueter will discuss “Immigration, Nationalism, and Racism: How is Europe Coping?” at 2 p.m. in the Wyoming Union Senate Chambers. He plans to give a 15-minute presentation, followed by a 45-minute question-and-answer session with UW faculty, staff, students and community members.

“Populism is a challenge we are facing on both sides of the Atlantic, and the answer (hopefully) is ‘Wir schaffen das’ or ‘Yes, we can,’” Schlueter says.

Schlueter has served as the German consul general in San Francisco since August 2014. Before that, he was ambassador to the Eastern Caribbean region. From 2007-10, he was the director for conflict prevention, peace-building, democracy promotion and state-building at the German Foreign Office in Berlin. In that position, he repeatedly visited failed and fragile states -- mainly in Africa -- and promoted assistance programs and projects worldwide.

He has served as deputy ambassador in Buenos Aires; as deputy consul general in New York City and Los Angeles; and as deputy director of the unit working on Germany’s foreign policy toward the southern part of Latin America. At the German Foreign Office in Bonn, he was the desk officer for the Maghreb countries. He also was the spokesman for the German Embassy in Tel Aviv.

Schlueter studied political science at the University of Hamburg, Germany.

His visit to UW is related, in part, to “Germany Meets the U.S.,” a grant-funded project with the German Embassy.
