Germany’s role in global politics will be often discussed in the run-up to the country’s federal election this September. Future relationships with the United States, Russia, and China, as well as Germany’s position within Europe will be determined by the next government in Berlin. Please join us as representatives from the major parties present their respective party’s vision on German foreign policy.

This event is part of GMF's series Elections 2021: Choices for Germany after Merkel. The race to succeed Chancellor Merkel is wide open and parties are facing a competitive election campaign. The outcome of the federal elections will have strong implications for the future of Europe and the transatlantic relationship. Over the coming months, GMF will follow the campaign closely and host a series of expert conversations and discussions to provide context and analysis.
