Event | Wide-Open Field: Germany's Super Election Year

You're invited to an online discussion on Wednesday, March 31st 2021 from 9-10am EDT.

Following the first two state elections in Germany’s super election year, the victories of incumbent local executives would seem to point to the continued relative stability of German politics. And yet, the results of the state elections in Rhineland-Palatinate and Baden-Württemberg suggest that the upcoming races in four states and especially for the federal parliament are each a wide-open field. This highly competitive and dynamic election year will have consequences beyond Germany and shape European and international politics, including the Transatlantic relationship. Join us for a conversation on what happened in the first two elections in Germany this year, their importance in German federal politics, the possibilities for new leadership and the international relevance of Germany’s super election year.


  • Thomas Hitschler, MdB - Member of the Bundestag for Südpfalz (Rhineland-Palatinate)
  • Isabel Cademartori - Mannheim City Councilor (Baden-Württemberg)

Moderated by 

Max Bergmann - Senior Fellow, Center for American Progress
