Germany’s role in a changing world

Foreign policy will be a major factor in the forthcoming election

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?

In this episode we look at Germany’s role in the world and the part foreign policy will play in the election. We speak to polling experts Liana Fix and Julia Ganter from the Körber Foundation about how German voters view foreign policy, and to Cathryn Clüver Ashbrook, the director and CEO of the German Council on Foreign Relations, about the challenges for policymakers.
