  • Germany's views on the European crisis won't change

    Ulrike Guérot - 23 September, 2013

    Germany will continue to dissapoint the rest of Europe. Angela Merkel will remain cautious and resistant to grand plans, no matter how much Europeans want her to act.

    Britain's European catharsis

    Ulrike Guérot - 30 January, 2013

    Like Greece, Spain and Germany, Britain now faces a cathartic moment when it needs to decide what price it is worth paying to stay in the European Union: coolheaded rationality must prevail over emotion  

    The view from the capitals: the EU budget summit

    21 November, 2012

    Why Poland is the new France for Germany

    Konstanty Gebert, Ulrike Guérot - 19 October, 2012

    Germany and Poland have become close political allies. The future of the European Union may be decided in Berlin and Warsaw. But has Poland replaced France as Germany's most trusted European partner?   

    Reinventing Europe: Germany debates political union

    The Long Shadow of Ordoliberalism

    Sebastian Dullien, Ulrike Guérot - 27 July, 2012

    In its attempts to rescue the euro, Germany is often seen as the odd country out. However, what is seldom understood abroad is that the German position is about more than limiting its own fiscal exposure.  

    The EU summit: the view from the capitals

    27 June, 2012

    How does the EU summit look from Berlin, Madrid, Rome and Warsaw, and what are the expectations? Four of ECFR's experts tell us how they see the gathering of EU leaders and whether anybody should be optimistic about the outcome.  

    Why Berlin is fixed on a German solution to the eurozone crisis

    Sebastian Dullien, Ulrike Guérot - 6 March, 2012

    Understanding how Berlin thinks is now more important than ever. If EU leaders want Angela Merkel to listen to calls for growth, they first need to understand her economic mindset which is deeply rooted in a concept known as 'ordoliberalism'.  

    How European is the new Germany?

    Ulrike Guérot - 26 November, 2010

    Germany has fallen out of love with Europe, and its customary role as the uncomplaining engine of the EU. But as other EU members question whether Germany is now 'going it alone', Berlin must answer questions about what Germany wants from Europe in the 21st century, and what…

    Wie viel Europa darf es sein?

    Ulrike Guérot - 27 October, 2010

    Eine interessengeleite deutsche Europapolitik ersetzt zunehmend die historisch bedingte Symbiose zwischen Deutschland und Europa. Im post-romantischen Europa des 21.Jahrhunderts bestimmt sich Deutschlands Rolle neu – wie viel Europa darf es sein und was ist der Preis von…

    Happy Birthday, New Germany!

    Ulrike Guérot - 1 October, 2010

    The New Germany turns twenty this weekend. The country is rightly celebrating unification, and the economic success that has followed. But Berlin seems unable to cope with the new pivotal role in Europe that stems from its success story. Instead of looking for somebody else to…

    Immer weniger Europa

    Ulrike Guérot - 1 October, 2010

    Das neue Deutschland wächst sichtlich aus dem europäischen Haus heraus. Es profitiert von der EU, will Sie aber nicht führen und sieht sich stattdessen noch in der europäischen Opferrolle. Ist der Preis für Europa wirklich so hoch? Und sind wir nicht der…
