Abstract

Lubmin is a tiny, unremarkable seaside resort in the northeast-ernmost corner of Germany. At first glance, it would seem an odd place for presidents, prime ministers, and EU top officials to come together. Situated on the Baltic Sea, far away from Europe’s political and economic centers, and struggling to survive as a resort, Lubmin enjoys none of the fame attached to the nearby holiday islands of Rügen and Usedom. Nor can it compete with the grandiose, prestigious flair of Heiligendamm an hour’s drive to the west, which in 2007 hosted a much-publicized G8 summit.
