This panel focuses on major political challenges and opportunities facing Germany in the areas of economic, migration and environmental policy. The papers critically assess and question some long-held attitudes towards these policies in a European and global context, offering new conceptual lenses and empirical findings. They focus not only on the German domestic level but also provide a critical assessment of core German economic, migration and environmental policy issues within a wider European context.
