    Episode 46: The Young and Restless – A new generation of German MPs take charge Common Ground


Chancellor Angela Merkel defined politics in Germany for a generation and with her gone, younger German politicians have a rare opportunity to reshape the governance of their country and address key topics facing it.
This episode features excerpts of a virtual town hall Common Ground co-hosted with our partner, the German Marshall Fund of the United States. Host Soraya Sarhaddi Nelson talks with young German parliament members about their plans for the future and the pressing issues for their generation. Her guests:
  • Adis Ahmetovic, Member of the Bundestag (SPD);
  • Ria Schröder, Member of the Bundestag (FDP);
  • Merle Spellerberg, Member of the Bundestag (Alliance 90/The Greens).
This show is produced by Dina Elsayed.
