May 15 2017 - German Politics

This is a veritable disaster for the party that has controlled the country's industrial heartland for almost half a century. This marks the end of the so-called Schulz effect, the euphoria that surrounded Merkel's popular challenger ever since his surprise nomination earlier this year. His immediate task now will be to relaunch the so-far exclusively personality-driven SPD campaign for the Bundestag elections; the party immediately needs to start focusing on policies to widen the SPD's appeal beyond its core

Jan 25 2017 - Christian Democratic Union of Germany

A left-of-center coalition against Merkel is not becoming any more likely with Schulz…The biggest obstacle to a Schulz-led government with the Greens and the post-communist Left is that if the AfD enters the Bundestag, the resulting fragmentation will make a left-wing coalition impossible

Jan 25 2017 - German Politics

Opposition from the far-right alternative for Germany will force the chancellor to put up a fight; Schulz's nomination means that on top of this, she will face a center-left contender with the capacity for emotional messaging and no history in domestic German politics – the advantage of a fresh face in times of anti-establishment

Jan 17 2017

Additional administrative burdens on businesses and the restoration of a border between Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland are among the problematic

Jan 17 2017 - Single market

Even with May providing slightly greater clarity – or rather publicly embracing the inevitable (losing access to the single market) – the question of a transition deal will likely remain unresolved for the foreseeable

Dec 07 2016

European Central Bank (ECB) President Mario Draghi is set to announce an extension of his quantitative easing (QE) program after the bank's Governing Council meeting in Frankfurt on 8 December.

Dec 01 2016 - Italian elections

Governing Italy has always been a difficult affair. Pushing reforms has been

Sep 19 2016 - Christian Democratic Union of Germany

Berlin's urban politics are hardly a blueprint for developments on the federal level. Still, tonight's (Sunday's) result was the weakest CDU showing ever in Berlin. For Merkel, the loss of yet another regional state government means that pressure from the CDU's Bavarian sister party, the Christian Social Union (CSU), will intensify further as of next

Sep 16 2016 - Christian Democratic Union of Germany

The next signpost to watch will be whether the CSU officially backs Merkel in time for the December CDU federal conference. But even if the Bavarians delay their decision until early 2017, the lack of alternatives means that time is on Merkel's

Most likely the center-right candidate is going to face a run-off against Marine Le Pen from the far-right and what you need in that second-round run-off is that ability to win over the disappointed voters of the Socialists whose candidate is probably going to drop out in the first

Jul 20 2016 - Christian Democratic Union of Germany

There's no reason to assume that there will be a hostile atmosphere. They've never met before but they should get along on at least a personal
