Germany and Europe in the time of crisis: which convergence?

L'Allemagne et l'Europe à l'heure de la crise : quelle convergence ?

Luncheon debatte dedicated to Ifri's corporate members, by invitation only.

With Hans Stark, Researcher, Secretary General of the Study Committee for Franco-German Relations (Cerfa), Ifri

The last European summits, devoted to the eurozone rescue, saw Germany take a leadsership that Angela Merkel has long hesitated to accept. Is this leadership reliable? Does the European policy of Berlin lay on an internal consensus, or do the German eurosceptics risk to impose themselves accross the Rhine? The pro-European commitment of the federal government arouse few enthousiasm in the neighbour states, where some voix s'élèvent, reprochant à la chancelière de confondre leadership et hégémonie. Berlin se voit en outre accusé d'empêcher la BCE de prendre les mesures qui s'imposent.

La "question allemande" est-elle de retour ?
