Germany, Angela Merkel, and the impending Election!
Germany is preparing for an important election in September which will not only decide the Chancellor's fate, but that of the entire European Union. Will Angela Merkel and her Christian Democratic party be able to stay at the helm of Europe's most populous nation and its economic powerhouse? Or will her adversaries, the Social Democratic party, perhaps in a coalition with the environmental friendly Green party, secure a win? What would be the ramifications of such a victory? Would a new Chancellor be as interested and dedicated in solving the current refugee crisis? And how would a new Chancellor get along with the Trump administration? Join German Historian Anette Isaacs for a fascinating discussion of these pressing and critical issues.
