On the occasion of his trip to Quebec, the Bavarian Minister of Justice took part in a discussion panel organized by the Université Laval in Québec City on October 27, 2016. In front of a full lecture hall, Pr. Dr. Bausback focused on the question of German federalism and its influence on Bavarian foreign policy. «Bavaria and Quebec are characterized by a strong stance in favor of their identity and culture», further explains Dr. Daniel-Erasmus Khan (right). «The federal system both regions are a part of defines what is possible for them, in particular with regards to their international relations.» The talk unearthed a heavy information deficit on both sides and all participants agreed on the need to further and deepen the exchanges on this particular topic.
