EMiS webinar: German elections and Europe
14 September 2021, 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
Germany goes to the polls on Sunday September 26 after 16 years of Angela Merkel as Chancellor and, arguably, the most powerful European leader.
Whatever the election outcome there will be a new Chancellor. But, as the most populous country and biggest economy in the EU, the change of leadership and government in Germany will have huge impact on the EU.
We will be examining the outcome and the implications for Europe three days after the election, on September 29, at 1700, with a stellar German cast:
Joining us are:
- Andreas Botsch, head of the international department, the DGB (German TUC), for the SPD
- Dr Rainer Ohler, partner consultant nat Senior Strategists, ex-head of corporate communications, EADS/Airbus and foreign policy adviser to Helmut Kohl, for the CDU
- Dr Nils Redeker, Policy Fellow for European Economic Policy at the Jacques Delors Centre;
- German Green MEP (TBC).
The webinar will be chaired by David Gow, ex-German Correspondent, The Guardian, and EMiS executive committee member.
