EMI : upcoming German Federal elections from a EU perspective

On 18 September, the European Movement International, together with the European Movement Germany, is holding an event in Brussels to discuss the upcoming German federal elections from a European perspective.

Featuring speakers from civil society organisations, political groups and the business sector, this debate aims to look at the German elections in a European context. Which EU-related issues are primarily featured in the German election campaign and in the party programmes? What are the priorities of German voters? How will the result affect businesses and what is the view from Brussels?
