Studio Berlin, broadcast June 24, 2020: Will Germany’s EU Council presidency move Europe forward? monika.mueller.kroll
Chancellor Angela Merkel and her cabinet today are discussing what to do when Germany takes the helm of the EU Council on July 1. The presidency comes at a crucial time as Europe grapples with recovery measures to handle the unprecedented health and economic crisis. What are the expectations and challenges ahead? And what are the other topics on Germany’s agenda during its six-month presidency?
Host Sylvia Cunningham discusses what’s at stake with Andreas Kluth, columnist at Bloomberg and Christian Odendahl, chief economist at the Centre for European Reform; with Christine Pütz from the Heinrich-Böll-Stiftung about the foundation’s recent survey on the German view of their role in the European Union and with Lea Nitsch, chairwoman of the “Junge Europäische Bewegung Berlin-Brandenburg” (Young European Movement Berlin-Brandenburg).
This show was produced by Monika Müller-Kroll and Sylvia Cunningham.
