What to do with a country more powerful than all others in Europe, but not powerful enough to dominate them all? For more than twenty years this "German question" seemed to have been solved by European integration. But the Euro crisis has posed a new German question: Will Germany assume a clear leadership role in Europe to save the Eurozone and push European integration forward? For some states this is a worrying prospect; for others the problem is precisely that Germany already dominates but does not assume responsibility for the continent as a whole. And many Germans feel that they are damned if they lead and damned if they don't.

The discussion, scheduled just two days before the 2013 German federal elections, features a number of distinguished panelists who will offer fresh political, economic, historical and, not least, cultural perspectives on Germany's role in Europe and the world. The panel will be chaired by Jan-Werner Mueller, professor of politics and acting director of the Program in Contemporary European Politics and Society.
