Angela Merkel: Redefining Leadership in German Politics

Dr. Mary Hampton, Air Command & Staff College, Maxwell AFB
March 7, 2014

As The Economist wrote recently, “Since the financial crisis erupted five years ago, the leaders of most big European countries—Britain, France, Italy, Spain—have been unceremoniously dumped by their voters. Yet on September 22nd Germany’s chancellor, Angela Merkel, won a landslide victory, boosting her Christian Democrats’ share of the vote to its highest since unification in 1990. Such a remarkable win after eight years in office during such a rocky period makes her the undisputed leader not just of Germany but of Europe.” Dr. Hampton’s talk will focus on Merkel’s leadership style and how it reveals changes in German political culture since the Second World War.
