2021 is a busy election year for Germany, a so called “Superwahljahr” (Super Election Year): six “Länder” are voting on new governments, in addition to the federal elections in September, which will see chancellor Angela Merkel step down after 16 years at help. Therefore the study trip will focus on parliamentary elections. It will reflect on campaigning strategies, voting mechanisms and electorates. It will also discuss theories of election systems and challenges for democracy. The trip aims to equip the students with a holistic understanding of elections, possible hurdles and specifics of the German election system.

The last day will be conducted together with our partner “AlSharq”, a specialist for educational and academic tours. All meetings are taking place online on ZOOM.

Le programme (en anglais) est téléchargeable dans la colonne de droite.
