Event description
By kind invitation of Greg Hands MP, the Henry Jackson Society is delighted to invite you to this fascinating event on German party politics

About this Event

Germany, like many countries in the West, is witnessing decline in support for long-standing establishment parties. The CDU/CSU and SPD recently recorded their lowest vote shares for a European Parliament Election, with the Greens and Alternative für Deutschland making electoral advances. Indeed, with the Greens quickly establishing itself as the leading progressive political party in Germany and the AfD enjoying high levels of electoral popularity in the formerly communist East, are we witnessing a fundamental rearrangement of German party politics? And what can the beleaguered establishment parties do to arrest their electoral decline?

 By kind invitation of Greg Hands MP, the Henry Jackson Society is delighted to invite you to this fascinating event on what is driving these seismic changes in German party politics, and how this fits into the broader European political context.
