East West Conference
23 - 30 July 2020
Re-emerging from the aftermath of WWII and the Cold War, Berlin has since firmly established itself as one of Europe’s brightest centres of culture and engineering. The conference venue is centered around the Brandenburg Gate where US President Kennedy made his “Ich bin ein Berliner” speech and US President Reagan howled “Mr Gorbachev, tear down this wall”. The fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989 paved the way for German formal reunification the following year.
Berlin is a destination steeped in medical and legal history. The Charité in Berlin is one of Europe’s oldest and largest teaching hospitals (established in 1710), and was initially founded for victims of the plague. The faculty has produced more than half of Germany’s Nobel laureates in physiology and medicine. Berlin is also the host of the annual World Health Summit, whereby over 1,600 people gather from the areas of politics, academia and private and civil departments all discuss current and future health care challenges from those viewpoints.
Berlin has no means forgotten its past, and there are many memorials throughout the city to commemorate the city’s history. The Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe (dedicated to the Jewish victims of the Holocaust) and Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp National Memorial (where SS Officers were trained before being deployed to oversee other concentration camps) are just 2 examples of honoring those who lost their lives in the war.
Twenty years after its post-wall rebirth, Berlin is a scene-stealing combo of glamour and grit, teeming with top museums and galleries, grand opera and guerrilla clubs, gourmet temples and ethnic snack shacks. When it comes to fashion, art, design and music, the German capital is the city to be. Berlin is home to renowned composers, universities, research institutes, orchestras and museums, many of which we hope to explore through both the social and academic programs.
