German Elections: Implications for Europe
29 September 2021, 5:00 pm - 6:30 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, in a webinar with a stellar German cast.
Joining us are:
- Andreas Botsch, head of the international department, the DGB (German TIUC), 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
The webinar will be chaired by David Gow, ex-German Correspondent, The Guardian, and EMiS executive committee member.
The event will be recorded, you can watch it later here.
