Title: "The German Election 2017 and its implications for Europe"
By Prof. Dr. Jürgen Neyer
European and International Politics, European University Viadrina
Location: Education Building, Room 570, Floor 5th
Professor Neyer is Professor of European and International Politics and Dean of the Department of Social and Cultural Sciences at the European University Viadrina. His lecture provides an up-to-date insight into the German debate on the future of Europe. It reflects on the implications of the 2017 Bundestag election and its likely impact on Germany’s role in Europe. He will do a tour de force over pressing problems of the European Union and addresses the question of whether Germany is ready to live up to its European responsibilities. As the „indispensable nation“, Germany carries a special obligation to provide serving leadership and to transform the neoliberal European order into a political setting which can be supported for good reasons not only by capital but also by the weak and poor. If Germany fails to live up to its responsibility, Europe will pay the price of a growing illiberal movement.
