Angela Merkel served as German Chancellor for 16 years, resigning in 2021.
The new government led by Chancellor Olaf Scholz, a coalition of the Social Democratic Party (SPD) with the Green Party and the FDP (Free Democratic Party), is having to cope with a complex array of geopolitical issues including Europe’s energy crisis, the war in Ukraine, the emerging policy fault lines with France, the new right-wing regime in Italy, and an expanding NATO.
Who better to explain how this amalgam of a centrist party with two divergent minor parties is managing these complexities and determining Germany’s position in Europe post Angela Merkel than Dr Joe Hajdu who gave the enormously popular 2022 U3APP seminar on Angela Merkel.
Dr. Joe Hajdu is a retired academic from Deakin University. He is a cultural geographer who has long-term connections with Germany. He has conducted research in Germany and has been a very interested follower of German politics past and present. In the last decade he has published two books about the history and culture of cities in Europe. In 2010 his book ‘Berlin Today’ appeared. This was followed in 2015 by ‘Budapest: A History of Grandeur and Catastrophe’. His third book, ‘Frankfurt: Where Germany meets the World’, was published in 2022.
