The Future of the European Union: A liberal view from Germany

Copyright: OSCE/Micky Amon-Kröll


More than five months after the election, Germany has finally been able to form a government. The conclusion of the coalition talks were received with relief, also beyond its national borders. Germany is now capable of acting politically again, which means that not only domestic politics can go ahead, but decisions and reforms on the European level can be fully tackled as well. Brexit in the West, infringement to the rule of law in the East, and looming transatlantic tensions are only a few challenges that will need further attention in the future.

How does the German liberal opposition perceive these challenges and what are the priorities? What are the views on Europe? What can be expected in the new legislative period?

Join us and our distinguished speaker Michael Georg Link, Member of the German Parliament and speaker on European Affairs of the FDP group, for our Breakfast Brief, as these and other questions will be discussed.
