Elizabeth Pond

Non-Resident Fellow

Elizabeth Pond works in both the worlds of journalism and academia. She is also a non-resident Fellow at the Center for Transatlantic Relations. Her specialty is tracking the dynamics of transformations.

She lives in Berlin, writes occasional magazine articles, and teaches now and then at American or German colleges or universities.
