Germany’s Role in Europe

In early 2021, the U.S. inaugurated a new President, the United Kingdom left the European Union, and the Covid-19 vaccine roll-out has been lethargic in Europe. Looking to the months ahead, Germany will hold a historic election when Chancellor Angela Merkel will step down after nearly 16 years and a new Chancellor will be selected. On May 26, the World Affairs Council in Atlanta, in partnership with the ACG, held a discussion with German Ambassador to the U.S. Dr. Emily Haber, moderated by Rickey Bevington, Senior Anchor for Georgia Public Radio. Ambassador Haber discussed the transatlantic relationship as well as Ambassador Haber’s take on issues such as the Iran nuclear deal, Russia, and China.
