    Public Program | "Germany before the Election - An External Perspective"
    "Germany before the Election - An External Perspective" was our topic on September 17. Foreign correspondent Erik Kirschbaum from Reuters, Pascal Thibaut from Agence Presse Francaise, Flamina Busotti from IANSA in Italy and Polish journalist Rosalia Romaniec were discussing at the China Club. In all four states the elections were viewed from a Euro crisis perspective. While France hoped for a Great Coalition, Poland was counting on continuity. The USA preferred a strong Germany that would take a leadership role not only in the Euro crisis but also in other international issues.
