What are the consequences of the corona pandemic on German politics?

Professor Grande will present the results of his research prior and following the election in Germany on 26 September 2021. A discussion group of state parliament representatives has invited him to refer on the same topic. He will not only focus on the election, but also on the overriding questions that are arising in the aftermath of the impact of the corona pandemic on German politics: 1. Who governs? The election, its results, and the possible change of government. 2. How will it be governed? The effects of the pandemic on the system of government itself. 3. Under what conditions must government take place in the future? Political conflicts, polarization and a new balance between national and international politics are at the core here.

Prof. Dr. Edgar Grande

Professor Grande is the founding director of the “Zentrum für Zivilisationsforschung”, center for civil society, research at the Wissensschaftszentrum Berlin für Sozialforschung (2017). He held the chair of comparative politics at the Geschwister-Scholl-Institut at the LMU Munich from 2004 to 2017.
