From Cold War to Hot Peace? Angela Merkel, Vladimir Putin and the 'Triangulation' of German Foreign Policy Dr. Joyce Mushaben, University of Missouri-St.Louis

19 Jan 2016

As Germany's first female, Eastern Chancellor, Angela Merkel took to the international stage like a moth to a flame. She quickly emerged as an effective mediator among three competing forces: the United States, the European Union and Russia. Her expertise in energy security, environmental sustainability, and climate change accorded her a distinctive voice in "high politics". Merkel presents herself as a critical friend of the US. Dr. Mushaben will present some short case studies illustrating Merkel's efforts to keep both superpowers engaged.
