The German Marshall Fund of the United States (GMF) is pleased to invite you to be a part of our small audience for the panel discussion recorded by BBC Radio 4 on “Election Year 2017: Germany’s Domestic Politics and Foreign Policy.”
Politically, 2016 has seen the United Kingdom’s decision to “Brexit” from the European Union as well as Donald Trump’s recent election as the next U.S. president. In this changing political climate with so much at stake, one of Europe’s leading countries, Germany, will head to the polls next fall to elect a new government. Dr. Günter Krings, Parliamentary State Secretary, Federal Ministry of the Interior; Dr. Franziska Brantner, Member of the German Bundestag; Roland Tichy, business journalist and publicist, Tichys Einblick; and Dr. Joerg Forbrig, Director of the Fund for Belarus Democracy, GMF, will discuss Germany’s domestic developments and their effect on Berlin’s foreign policy regarding Europe and transatlantic relations. Ritula Shah, Presenter of “The World Tonight,” BBC Radio 4, will moderate the panel discussion.
The panel is in English and will be recorded. The discussion will be broadcasted on December 1 and made available on BBC Radio 4's website from 23:00 CET / 17:00 ET. The Q&A session will be off-the-record.
