Germany's role in Europe in the year of the federal election

Livestream | February 2nd to 4th 2021

Der Tagesspiegel, DIE ZEIT, Handelsblatt and WirtschaftsWoche invited you to discuss the issues we need in Europe in the year 2021 – from strengthening democracies, European digital sovereignty, a common European internal market, to climate protection goals in the year of COP 26, the upcoming UN climate conference in Glasgow. While Europe still has to stomach Brexit, a revival of good transatlantic relationships under US President Joe Biden is within reach. Meanwhile China extend its role on the world stage. Last but not least, the general election will determine the political agenda in Germany.

The hashtag for the event is #Europe20XX.
