Overview

Just how will 60 million Germans vote this September in the Federal Elections?   Much is at stake for the biggest economy in Europe, the ripples of change will be felt across Europe so this election is important to us all. We know Chancellor Merkel be handing over to a new party leader but we do not know yet if this person will have sufficient support to lead Germany into its post pandemic future. Will a new type of coalition emerge? Will the current balance of power between parties alter?

Either way, Germany is at a critical crossroads in terms of political and economic change and the next six months will shape the election results. Issues ranging from climate management, immigration policy and the all important economic performance are uppermost in everyone’s minds. Will Germany manage to vaccinate its population before people go to the polls?

This is the perfect time to hear opinions and insights from our range of expert speakers. Each brings a unique perspective whether they are economists, political scientists, politicians or historians. ​
