State of the Nations, 2021

11 October 2021

On 7 October the calendar of departmental events in German started with our annual snapshot of political life in the German-speaking countries. Shortly after German Unity Day on 3 October, and a few weeks ahead of Austrian National Day on 26 October, there was plenty to discuss.

Our first departmental event of the term saw a panel of staff (Mark Allinson, Christophe Fricker and Anna Havinga) reflecting on recent political developments in the German-speaking sphere:  the centenary of Liechtenstein's constitution, the German elections, and local elections in Austria, including a rather surprising result in one of our own favourite cities, Graz.  Many thanks to our speakers for their insights and our audience for some great questions!
