Lectures of the day: Germany after Merkel
Angela Merkel has governed Germany since 2005, but has now stepped down as party leader and is not standing for re-election. While her own party is grappling with a leadership crisis, the social democrats are heading for the abyss and the Greens and right-wing populists have made big gains. What does German party politics look like today? And how difficult will life be for those taking over after Merkel?
Ingrid Brekke is an author and journalist resident in Berlin. In this lecture, she addresses how the changes in Germany will affect Europe’s future.
The lecture will be held in Norwegian.
