Germany in Crisis
Date and TimeTuesday, December 5, 2017
5:30 PM - 6:30 PM
- Kirkhof Center » RM 2270
Join us for a discussion with Nico Lange, Director of the German Konrad Adenauer Foundation, who will discuss the current political crisis in Germany.
The September German national elections opened the door for Angela Merkel’s fourth term as Chancellor, but also saw a Far-right party, the Alternative for Germany (AfD), win seats in the federal legislature for the first time since the end of the Second World War. Difficulties forming a new governing coalition raise important questions not only about the future of German politics and policy, but also about the impact of the political crisis on the EU and German-American relations.
