With Germany in crisis, Europe-watchers contemplate an E.U after Merkel



Germany has for decades been Europe’s pillar of stability, supporting the European Union through economic crises, pressures from immigration and the threat of a resurgent far-right.

But with Germany’s politics now in disarray — and the future of its chancellor Angela Merkel hanging in the balance — Europe risks losing its de facto leader, resulting in a power vacuum across the continent.

As a result, Europe-watchers are contemplating what protracted uncertainty in the country might mean for the E.U, and how it might fare if Merkel does not survive?
