Policy Brief „Approaching the German Federal election: The Traditional Parties break the trend and stay in front” published

In the latest DIIS Policy Brief “Approaching the German Federal election: The Tradi­tional Parties break the trend and stay in front”, Fabrizio Tassinari, Senior Researcher at the DIIS, and Sebastian Tetzlaff, Research Associate at the IEP, provide an analysis of the electoral campaign in Germany and the ramifi­ca­tions of large parties adopting positions tradi­tionally held by populist parties. In this respect, the sustained popularity of the Christian Democ­ratic Union (CDU) and the Social Democ­ratic Party of Germany (SPD) stands contrary to a trend within Europe whereby the political landscape has undergone signif­icant shifts to the detriment of estab­lished parties, as witnessed in the last elections in the Nether­lands and France.
