Online Livestream

Subtitled Notes from a Grown-Up Country,  John Kampfner raises important questions for our post-Brexit landscape: why, despite its faults, Germany has become a model for others to emulate, while Britain fails to tackle contemporary challenges?

Emerging from a collection of city states 150 years ago, no other country has had as turbulent a history as Germany or enjoyed 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.

Part memoir, part history, part travelogue, Why the Germans Do It Better  is a rich and witty portrait of an eternally fascinating country – one many in the West still love to hate.

This is an online livestream. In-person tickets for this event are also available...
