Über die Veranstaltung

The German Green Party, with its chancellor candidate Annalena   Baerbock, is currently polling close on the heels of Angela Merkel’s   Christian Democrats. If this trend continues, the Greens are likely to enter   government after the September elections for the first time since 2005, and   they may even be in the chancellery. Such a sea change in Germany’s politics   would obviously have a bearing on transatlantic relations—but in what ways?   How would Green Party participation in the next government change, improve,   or complicate relations with the United States? Is there such a thing as   Green Atlanticism, and what does it entail? To discuss these questions and   more, we will speak with veteran Green politician, Cem Özdemir, in this   month’s edition of #TransatlanticTuesdays
