German elections 2021: the coalitions that could shape Germany’s future

A new series from the New Statesman focusing on the German Federal Election 2021. Who is in the running to be the next German chancellor? 

Jeremy Cliffe in Berlin presents a new series from World Review focusing on the German Federal Election – who will be the next chancellor of Germany?

We speak to the New Statesman’s Ben Walker as we launch our new German poll tracker, and discuss what to expect from the campaign with Constanze Stelzenmüller, the Fritz Stern chair on Germany and transatlantic relations at the Brookings Institution in Washington, DC, and the journalist and author Khuê Phạm from Zeit magazine in Berlin.
