    Nov. 28: Gerald R. Kleinfeld: “The German Elections 2017” (Chavez 104, 12:30-1:20 p.m.)

    Professor emeritus Gerald Kleinfeld

    “In October 2017, the Germans went to the elections, and the outcome was rather unclear because no party won a majority, and until today no workable coalition has arisen.  In fact, just recently, the Free Liberal Party left the negotiations, resulting in present Chancellor Angela Merkel struggling in her attempt to form a new government under her leadership. Prof. Emeritus Gerald Kleinfeld (formerly at ASU, now living in Tucson), will give a talk about the German elections and their outcome this coming Tue, Nov. 28, 12:30-1:30, in Chavez 104. This talk is open and free to the public. Prof. Kleinfeld has been the leading American political scientist in dealing with German politics over the last forty years, and he has interviewed every candidate for the post of chancellor. He also predicted the fall of the wall and was right there when this happened.”
