About the panel:
Late last year, Angela Merkel, who led Germany’s Christian Democratic Union for the past 18 years stepped down as its party leader and announced that she would not run for reelection as chancellor in 2021. As Angela Merkel prepares to leave the political stage, our panelists will examine her legacy, her exit strategy, and the possible repercussions of her departure for German party politics and the international political landscape.
