Schulz-train blues?

Schulz-train blues?

The past four months has seen one of the strangest and weirdest periods in recent German party political and electoral history. This phase began on 24 January when Social Democratic party leader, Sigmar Gabriel, decided not to run as the candidate for chancellor this autumn, and also to step down as chairman of the SPD. In came Martin Schulz, the former president of the European parliament – an important man on the European stage, but a largely unknown quantity in terms of German domestic politics.

Tobias Dürr, one of the authors, draws in his article on the recent closed-door lunch organized by AMO as part of the European Lunches: Raising Czech Media Awareness on Topical European Agenda program.
