Social Cohesion in Uncertain Times: The Green Party’s Impact on Germany’s New Government

March 28, 2022 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm EDT

In one month, Germany has received nearly 300,000 refugees from Ukraine and has hit a new record daily number of COVID cases. Coupled with growing concerns over energy diversity and rising costs, Germany is facing simultaneous crises, all of which put human rights front and center. As a member of the three-party Ampelkoalition, the Greens – which head both the Foreign Ministry and Ministry of Economics and Energy – have taken on an important role in shaping the social priorities of the new German government.

Join us on March 28 at 12:00 pm ET, for a conversation with the Co-Chair of the Green Party, Ricarda Lang.

Ricarda Lang is a German politician who is serving as co-leader of the Alliance 90/Die Grüne since January 2022, alongside Omid Nouripour. She has been a member of the Bundestag since 2021. Previously, she was the co-deputy leader of the party from 2019 to 2021 and spokeswoman for women’s policy, and co-leader of the Green Youth from 2017 to 2019. In the negotiations to form a coalition government between the SPD, Greens, and FDP following the 2021 election, Ms. Lang led her party’s delegation in the working group on equality.
