IRMO Brief Issue no. 6/2017 written by Krševan Antun Dujmović deals with the federal election which will be held in September in Germany. The current German Chancellor Angela Merkel and her party, the CDU, stand the best chance to win the election, according to the opinion polls. The victory of CDU would manifest Germany’s determination for a stronger European integration during the UK and EU Brexit negotiations. The Brief also analyses the German position in the world under Angela Merkel, further positioning of Germany within the EU, and relations with the US and Russia.
