With Chancellor Angela Merkel up for a fourth term amid challenges from the Social Democrats and the populist Alternative for Germany, the election of September 24 holds the potential to reshape German politics. The Transnational European Studies program, the Germanic and Slavic Studies department, and SPIA present this roundtable discussion of the elections in Germany and Europe, 2016-17. Speakers include Alex Sager (Germanic and Slavic Studies), Markus Crepaz (SPIA), Cas Mudde (SPIA), and Jan Uelzmann (Georgia Tech). Refreshments will follow the event.
