TALKING EUROPE

Politicians, activists and researchers debate the issues facing the EU and a 'guest of the week' offers their insight in a long-format interview that gets to the heart of the matter. Saturday at 12.10 pm.

Latest update : 2017-09-18

Four more years for Angela Merkel?

Germany is a nation at the heart of Europe politically, geographically and historically - and one that's about to hold a key nationwide election. Chancellor Merkel has a strong lead in the polls and looks likely to win a fourth term. But why in such a strong economy are there so many working people struggling to make ends meet? And where is Germany likely to go on the migration crisis, in light of a strengthening far-right at home, and drastically deteriorated relations with key partner Turkey?
