Event Short Description

John Kampfner – Why the Germans Do it Better, In conversation with Stewart Collins

Event Information

Emerging from a collection of city states 150 years ago, no other country has had as turbulent a history as Germany or had so much prosperity in such a short time frame. Today, as much of the world succumbs to authoritarianism and democracy is undermined from its heart, Germany stands as a bulwark for decency and stability.

Mixing personal journey and anecdote with compelling empirical evidence, journalist John Kampfner has produced an exploration of the country. Raising important questions for our post-Brexit landscape, Kampfner asks why, despite its faults, Germany has become a model for others to emulate, while arguably Britain fails to tackle contemporary challenges. Part memoir, part history, part travelogue, Why the Germans Do it Better is a rich and witty portrait of an eternally fascinating country.

John Kampfner in conversation with Stewart Collins on the 5th of November.
