On the 26th of September, Germans will go to the polls. As Chancellor Angela Merkel will not stand for re-election, this vote will mark the end of an era. The country’s proportional electoral system will force two or more political parties to seek common ground to try to form a government. The new political balance that determined by the ballot box will have a significant impact on the country’s EU and foreign policies and, by the extent, on the European Union’s stand on the global stage. Our guest is Katja Kipping MdB, leader of “Die Linke” in the German Budestag. She will give a talk on “Germany after Merkel: recalibrating EU and foreign policies”. This is a public event and her talk will be followed by a Q&A session open to the audience.
