About the Episode
Chancellor Angela Merkel’s 16 years of leadership ended with a cliffhanger election where the center-left Social Democratic Party pulled off a narrow victory. Stefan Kornelius, Ryan Heath, and Bethany Allen-Ebrahimian join Council President Ivo Daalder to examine what the election results—and eventual coalition government—mean for Germany and Europe.
