Episode 10 - Angie and us

The journey is about to end. Emilia has already walked us through the most pivotal moments of Angela Merkel’s life and political career, including her reaction to the financial crash, the Greek sovereign debt crisis and the rise in migration flows in Europe. However, before deciding on which question to ask Merkel, she also wants to reflect on the way her departure will change politics both in Germany and in the EU. Emilia will tell us about Merkel’s 180° U-turn on the question of European debt. She will share with us the kind words of Alexis Tspiras on her legacy. She will explain to us why she thinks that Angela Merkel is the perfect image of what Europe is today.

The guests featured in this episode are:

  • Jean-Claude Juncker, President of the European Commission from 2014 to 2019, previously President of the Eurogroup and Luxembourg’s longest serving Prime Minister.
  • Alexis Tsipras, Prime Minister of Greece from 2015 to 2019 and leader of the Official Opposition since then.
  • Florence Autret, journalist and author of “Angela Merkel. Une Allemande (presque) comme les autres”.
