"The European Union - seen from a post-Merkel Germany" - Lecture by Prof. Jakob Lempp at the University Turin


Every year, the University of Turin hosts the "Region Europe" program, an interdisciplinary lecture series sponsored by the European Union. The program focuses on the European Union as a model of regional integration and on the role of the European Union as a global actor in international relations. Prof. Jakob Lempp, Professor for Political Science with a focus on International Relations, spoke in a hybrid format on November 16, 2021 to about 100 participants from different European countries on the topic "The European Union - seen from a post-Merkel Germany". He tried to answer the question of how Germany's role within the European Union will develop after the end of Angela Merkel's 16-year chancellorship and what consequences the change of government in Germany will have for regional integration in Europe.
