BACKGROUND

Germany undisputedly exercises a key leadership role in the functioning of the European Union. Its economic and political weight, combined with a commitment to European integration, ensures that the country is at the heart of EU decision making. The EU itself faces a host of substantial challenges (of which Brexit is only one among many). Moreover, following the recent German federal election, the prospect of a tripartite coalition between the CDU/CSU, FDP and Greens may well constrain Chancellor Angela Merkel in any efforts to deepen integration, such as further fiscal and political union in the Eurozone. At this critical juncture, join us for a discussion with senior figures from Germany and the UK on the political prospects for the Bundesrepublik and the European Union.

This event is free. Registration in advance required. All are welcome
