After the Dutch, French ánd Brittish elections earlier this year, the results from the German elections will also be known in October.

A stronger Franco-German axis with Macron and, yet again, Merkel? Or will it be the former president of the European Parliament Schulz who takes over in Berlin?

What changes in the European power balance? How does the shifting powerbalance affect the course of events in the EU? And how do the Netherlands fit in the picture?

Mathieu Segers, Michèle de Waard, and Kathalijne Buitenweg discussed these questions on October 4th, 2017. Max van Weezel led the debate.
