As the dust settles, it is clear that Germany has voted for change. But will the result from the 2021 German Election also deliver progress? Together with the newly elected Green Member of Parliament Ricarda Lang, International Editor at the New Statesman Jeremy Cliffe, and Tobias Dürr, a founding member of Das Progressive Zentrum, we dissected the election results, explored the different coalition options, and what it all means for progressives in Germany, Europe, and North America. At the end of the discussion, Josef Lentsch, co-founder of the Austrian party NEOS, added a liberal perspective on the political developments in Germany.

This episode is the fourth part of our Progressive Governance podcast series. We recorded this discussion one week after the 2021 German Election, at an event associated with the Progressive Governance series, a yearly summit that brings together progressive leaders and movements from across Europe and North America.

The episode was produced by Bear Radio. The session was designed in cooperation with the Foundation For European Progressive Studies.
