Podcast: German Election 2021 with Jeremy Cliffe and the New Statesman

A special episode of "Germany Elects" featuring Martin Schulz, Katarina Barley, Jens Zimmermann, Ulrike Hermann, and Anja Wehler-Schöck.

In a special episode of the Germany Elects podcast, Jeremy Cliffe talks with an array of experts on progressive politics in Germany to discuss the prospect of a “traffic-light” coalition of the centre-left SPD, the Greens and the centre-right FDP.

He is first joined by Martin Schulz, the FES president and SPD chancellor candidate at the 2017 election, to discuss the significance of the election on 26 September in German and European politics.

Then he is joined by SPD MP Jens Zimmermann and commentator Ulrike Herrmann to discuss the SPD in the Bundestag and how a “traffic light” government might govern domestically.

Finally he is joined by MEP and former federal justice, labour and families minister Katarina Barley as well as the editor of the IPG journal Anja Wehler-Schöck to discuss what the election means for Europe and the wider world.
