Happy Dog Takes on the World: “Person of the Year” or Her Big Mistake?

March 1, 2016 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Time Magazine lauded Angela Merkel, the Federal Chancellor of Germany, by naming her “Person of the Year.” In Germany, however, she provoked mixed feelings and some serious opposition within her party, the Christian Democratic Union (CDU). Can she regain control?

Join us, the City Club of Cleveland, International Partners in Mission, the Northeast Ohio Consortium for Middle Eastern Studies (NOCMES),  and the Cleveland Warburg Chapter for the American Council on Germany for a discussion on Angela Merkel and the politics of Germany. 

Panelists include:

Kenneth F. Ledford, Ph.D., Chair, Department of History, Case Western Reserve University

Christoph von Marschall, Ph.D., Chief Diplomatic Correspondent, Der Tagesspiegel

 Astrid Ziebarth, Migration Fellow, Europe Program of the German Marshall Fund

This discussion will be moderated by WCPN host/producer Tony Ganzer.
