Joyce Marie Mushaben on Post-Merkel Germany
Play • 32 min
What is a post-Merkel Germany going to look like? How did Germany change in the 16 years of Merkel’s administration and should Germans be afraid of a political backlash?  Political scientist Joyce Marie Mushaben discusses ongoing disparities between former East and West Germany, issues of gender equality, and the rise of a new right in Germany. Mushaben is an Affiliated Faculty member in the BMW Center for German & European Studies at Georgetown University and works with the European feminist think tank Gender5 Plus. Her research focuses on new social movements, German national identity and generational change. Mushaben recently published the book Becoming Madam Chancellor: Angela Merkel and the Berlin Republic.
