The German election of September 2017 saw a weakened Angela Merkel returned to power for a fourth term. Merkel must now bring new parties into her coalition, which is likely to include the Greens. The election also brought a far-right party into the national parliament for the first time since 1945.

What impact will this have on Germany, the EU and the world? Join the panel for a discussion of the possible consequences, followed by a Q&A.
