After 16 years, Germany is saying farewell to Angela Merkel, its longtime Chancellor. As Germans head to the polls on Sunday, the rest of Europe will also be watching closely to see who emerges as the next leader of Germany. Throughout her tenure, Chancellor Merkel has steered Germany and the European Union through a number of crises, from the euro-debt crisis to the migration crisis - both of which left their mark on the continent and on Greece specifically. Professor George Pagoulatos joins The Greek Current to discuss Angela Merkel’s legacy on the European level and within Greece, what her departure means for Europe’s position on the global stage, and look ahead at tomorrow’s crucial elections in Germany.

Professor George Pagoulatos is the Director General of ELIAMEP, the Hellenic Foundation for European and Foreign Policy, is Professor of European Politics and Economy at the Athens University of Economics and Business (AUEB), and Visiting Professor at the College of Europe.
