The German Federal Elections of September 2013 and the Future of Europe
Date: 02 Oct 2013
Location: 2.18, 65-68 Park Place
This lecture examines the significance of the federal elections of 2013 for Germany and for Europe. It will look at the context of the campaign; how it was conducted, including the issues and personalities; the election results; and their implications for government formation and for domestic and European policies. Most of all, what do the federal elections tell us about German policies and politics in a European context? Is Germany a 'special case' (Sonderfall)? What is the potential for a Euro-sceptic turn?
This event was organised by our European Governance, Identity and Public Policy Unit.
