Panel Event: The German Elections and Europe's Future

Event announcement

This public panel discussion will address the results of the elections from three regions of Europe by researchers who are this year’s Europe’s Futures Fellows, moderated by the IWM Acting Rector and Permanent Fellow, Ivan Vejvoda.

The German parliamentary elections could be a watershed moment for the country and for Europe. Will the Federal Republic continue with Merkelism and status quo or are we looking at a possible repositioning of Germany toward a more engaged posture in European foreign and security policy. What does this mean for Europe’s Future? There are expectations in a significant number of member states of the EU and more broadly for Germany to take a more pro-active and strategic role at a time when Europe is being challenged from various quarters in a changed international environment.
