Germany heads to the polls on September 22nd in elections that are being closely followed in Europe and beyond. With doubts over Greek debt and economic problems across Southern Europe, these elections are incredibly important to the future of the Eurozone. LSE Senior Lecturer in Political Economy, Waltraud Schelkle, examines the meaning of the elections for the EU. Dr Patricia Hogwood of the University of Westminster takes a closer look at the election campaign and other emerging parties, and world renowned German sociologist, Ulrich Beck, tells us why Europe should reinvent modernity.
