The Long Read: Complex, Not Impossible

Research output: Non-textual / digital / web - outputsWeb publication/siteAcademic


Let’s make one thing clear from the start. The Federal Republic of Germany is not facing a constitutional crisis – not by a long stretch. This is despite the Liberals walking away from exploratory negotiations on forming the next federal government with the Christian Democrats (CDU), the Christian Social Union (CSU; which only runs in the state of Bavaria) and the Greens – an alliance that would have been known as the Jamaica Coalition (named after the colours of that country’s flag, with black standing for the CDU/CSU, green for the Greens and yellow for the Liberals).
