A reform agenda for Germany
After the recent leadership vote within Germany’s Social Democratic Party (SPD), the future of the grand coalition government remains uncertain. Yet, the challenges facing the country are ever-more pressing. In order to find solutions to this dilemma, we have launched the blog 2020plus which you can now find online. It serves as a platform for authors from academic, economic and political backgrounds to make suggestions for a reform agenda in 2020. A discussion paper called “A grand coalition for great challenges?” served as the project’s kick-off. It argues for a progressive restart of the German government, which urgently needs a plausible reason for existence, a red thread in its agenda as well as clear strategic priorities.
