On September 26, 2021, German voters went to the polls to elect the members of the 20th Bundestag, the federal parliament. Predictions are that the new government will be a two- or three-party coalition that will replace the 16-year chancellorship of Angela Merkel, who is stepping down.

In this seminar, three renowned German experts will reflect on the results in relation to the future of Germany and Europe. What are the implications of the vote for Germany's economic and foreign policy? How has the balance of power shifted among German political parties? What do the German results portend for its European partners and for the global community?
