Analyzing the 2021 Bundestag Election

German voters will go to the polls on September 26th to conclude one of the most momentous campaigns in decades. Who came out on top? Which parties disappointed? Who will lead the next coalition and what combination of parties will likely come together? What are the policy implications for Germany, Europe, and beyond? We are bringing together three experts to address these and many other questions.
