The transformational challenges of the post-Merkel era

In a few days, after 16 long years of rule, the ‘royal’ figure of Angela Merkel will no longer dominate Germany. The Chancellor will have conducted her country through a complicated historical period while taking on a role that shouldn’t have been hers: the leader of an EU in the midst of a storm. Calm, maternal, she has given a reassuring face to Germany and to Europe that does not tell the whole story of the reality of her policy. In a way, she has fulfilled the same function as the Queen of England or the King of Belgium, by “holding together” a country. We must therefore ask ourselves what challenges Germany and Europe will meet after the disappearance of this major figure of the beginning of the century.
