Florence – Seminar with Henrik Enderlein and Brigid Laffan at the European University Institute. In Germany, the period right after the election is likely to be more interesting than the election campaign itself. The Chancellor will have to negotiate a difficult coalition agreement in a political context that is more unstable than the election result suggests.
European integration is one of the areas where disagreement among possible coalition partners is highest. At the same time, Europe is also one of the areas where some repositioning of the newly elected government is most needed – in particular on EMU deepening, Brexit, refugees matters and security / defence. In our discussion, we will assess the new political configuration in Germany after the election and assess how this affects the German positioning on EU matters.
