Watch our TV debate with Euronews! We think it’s high time we discussed the upcoming Bundestag elections from a European perspective. That’s why we recently teamed up with Euronews and organised a TV debate titled Deutschland Decides: What does Europe expect from Germany after Merkel?
In the debate, three MEPs, Eva Kaili (S&D Group), Gwendoline Delbos-Corfield (Greens/EFA) and Vlad Gheorghe from the Renew Europe Group, discuss what the election means for Europe and what Europe should expect from the next German government. Our Debating Europe community sent us great questions on topics like climate change, “illiberal democracies”, and European economic solidarity, which we discussed with the three guests. Take a look at the video above and join the discussion in the comments below!
Who will be Merkel’s successor? The outcome of the German elections on Sunday 26 September will have an enormous influence on the rest of Europe. In the run-up to the elections, Debating Europe/DE has been organising a series of citizens’ forums where young Germans have been discussing European issues with politicians from different parties. You can watch them here!
