Germany in Transition: Politics and Culture
June 23 @ 9:00 am - 12:30 pm
Since the Syrian refugee crisis of 2016, Germany has played an important role in Europe’s attempts to grapple with populations fleeing international conflict. Some view Germany as one of the more welcoming places in Europe, perhaps because many Germans want to atone for historical crimes. Others worry about the rising popularity of right-wing populism and the violent attacks that have been directed at refugees. How is Germany changing? Is a resurgent German nationalism reshaping German culture and politics? This Dialogue will explore these questions with special attention to the impact of refugee migrations.
