Germany marks low-key 30th anniversary of reunification

"Go to Germany. Now. Today marks a special anniversary for the country 30 years since the reunification of Eastern West Although the commemorations will be muted inevitably because of Corona virus, three decades as a single nation marks an important moment for Europe's biggest economy. GDP per inhabitant across Germany has risen fourfold since 1990. But the rising living standards hasn't been felt equally across East and West. East Germans, on average, still earn less than their West German counterparts and satisfaction with the political cars Indeed, with democracy as a form of government is lower in the east than it is in the West. That's according to a report by the government ombudsman for the former communist East Germany. Well, Dr Ulrich, A garage is a professor of European policy and the study of democracy. Don't know University crims in Austria and joins us Rekha. Welcome. Good morning. Good morning. How significant a day is this? Well, I think it is a very significant day for years. It's quite I mean, it's three decades on DH. I remember quite well the 25 years ceremonies, a Sze Yu said. Now the pandemic avoids that We have big celebrations, but indifference to 25 years and 30 years unification celebration. And I would say it's very important. But for the first time, there is also a sort ofthe reflection about what has been really happening. Yeah, you know, In the past celebrations we watch just celebrating and now there is a sort of deeper meditation about what did they do to the country politically, economically and so forth. That's interesting, and presumably, also, that's influenced to a degree by the fact that you've now got A lot of young adults who have never known Germany any different. Yes, there is. This sort of young generation was born after who never experienced the country divided And there's a lot of study that those don't feel The difference is that elder generation's would still sort of detect. But as I said, for the first time with these 30 years celebration it it seems to me that if you're listening to all these radio features that were obviously having in Germany today in the past weeks. So for the first time, you have a lot of critiques above the process that has been managed in 89, for instance, the toy hunt taking over the rotten industries and former JD and all these things. So there is a sort ofthe former GDR feeling that comes up sort off this heavenly being override it. Let me bring my guest him who may have some thoughts or questions to you, Rachel Shabby. What comes to mind for you? I think this is a fascinating subject and discussion. And I just wonder when you say Professor garrote when you say that there is deep in meditation about what it did to the country politically and economically. What sort of things are coming up in that conversation? For instance, just this morning when I was waking up with my German radio, and there will Ah, somebody saying who is a former media intellectual, but also sport a person. And who would say? Obviously, there was this What we call a regime so dictatorship regime? Yeah. But for the first time we tried to see it in a more saythe electrical way. Which is? Yes, it was ah dictatorship regime, But people were not all oppressed or did not in general field all oppressed. So there is this little sort of shades of gray in how you discuss that people actually could have been happy. And we do not want to be destroy biographies, you know? And you have for the first time people listening to former GDR sort ofthe personalities and and biographies, which say there was a life in Judea. It was not just dictatorship. Rachel was not the answer. You were expecting. Yeah, I wondered if it would be along those lines. Whether people would actually be able to articulate on a personal level. It wasn't all horrible, Andi. There are sort of that There are nuances to that conversation, and I wondered also, if there would be Ah, discussion about the inequalities that still persists. Germany. I'll come to you on that. In a moment we bring Bobby and then by all means, come back. The question I have is that the sense ofthe off unity that Germans now face Expedience. How much of that is influenced by the fact that for half off thes 30 years, Germany has been run by someone from the East. Someone from the GDR Angela Merkel. Not only has Germany been run by her, she's popular at home abroad, widely regarded as the great statesman off are off our time. I mean, To what degree does that help in this reunification? It's very interesting that you posed this question. And the interesting thing about Mrs Merkel is that she is a sod off. How can I say this? Let's say neutral. If you read the There is something interesting about her that she is not checked. She's not tacked East and she's not even tend women. Yeah, you have a lot of discussions, whether the fact very fact that we had for now, 16 years of German Female chancellor did something to the gender question in Germany. But the thing is that these things you do not really associate with Mrs backup. Neither the East West divide nor the gender thing because she tends to be if you read German newspapers. Often she's characterized as mut mother on, and that is interesting that the East thing doesn't take on her. It's not an obvious thing. So probably it has influence. Probably there's something beneath the surface is, but I would not come to it as an obvious sort of because she has been an East Europe, East German women that now 30 years after some of the country unification is OK. I would not make that link was not the answer. You were expecting. No, no, it was from the album. From the outside. It seems striking to me that she is from the East. But But now that I think of it, she doesn't really make a big deal of it herself. So I suppose it makes sense to pick up on the point that Rachel made about inequalities and how much they still exist on are talked about in the context of what went before. Inequalities. Rachel many thanks for the question. Yes, A lot of inequalities between East and West are still existant and on many layers of society. The thing is that the quality question is not really an East Western. You also have the prophet ear's off the benefit of unification. All the people who were basically trained and skilled and mobile by them in 89, you have those who were more say residual. And you know what? And More the countryside. He, um, so it's not only an East West divide. It's also a rule. Urban defied. If you go like say, for instance, or the recent prison is not as performance performing as likely, But life is a very good example for urban cluster that really has risen out of nothing. And you could also point to HINA, for instance, which always have this, you know, making watches and little eye tech industries and the little clusters there. But then you go to the mall rule areas in save the Arctic Sea making book for Pullman, and then you have a roomful of divide, And this is all about equality. And then one important thing is what is seldom told. But obviously we had a brain dying. We had 16 million people. Informer, Julia today there 11 Million, so five million left. But because there's no counting between East and West Germany about sort of leaving the country, it's not really in the statistics. You need to accept in a way that the brains and the mobile people left somewhere really rapidly after 89 movie

Europe without Merkel

"We're looking at Germany. What Chancellor Angela Merkel has announced her decision to step down as leader of the ruling, Christian Democrats. So all we know entering the post Merckel era. And what might it look like joining me on the line from Berlin is up euro chief there guys on in here in the studio as European editor Ben home die. First of all. What's this a surprise? Mrs Merkel's decision to step down. It was actually a surprise. Everybody was watching very carefully the elections in Hesse, which is one of the states in west Germany. They have elections on Sunday, and the CD you the Christian Democratic Union. Michael's party had been doing incredibly badly in the polls. And on the night. They all said did extremely badly their vote share shrank by eleven percentage points, but they actually scraped through which meant that they were able to stay in power and renew their coalition with the greens. And not even after bring in any coalition party. He's so actually the result was nowhere near as bad as some people had been expecting. I mean, there had been even suggestions that the government might have been voted out of office in that direction. It didn't happen. Now if that eventuality had happened everybody was expecting that Michael would step down. But the fact that the CPU clung to power meant. Indeed, I wrote myself it looked like she dodged the bullet despite that she decided to stand down. And that was the thing that surprised everybody that she squeaked through and Ponzi and squeak through and still she decided to stand down. And yet she's also said she intends or light to stay on as chancellor until twenty twenty one. But at the same time, there's now a contest onto lead the CD you so is her position tenable d think and who's emerging as the front runner for the CD you. Well, everything depends on who is elected party leader. Because there are three candidates who've declared one of them is Michael's anointed to add RS, rather undergrad. Cramped Cowan Bauer who's the current secretary general of the you now she is very much Marcle clone. She's very loyal to the chancellor, and she generally has a similar kind of agenda to her. She's very popular in the party. And she is odds on favor of the moment to win. But there are two others who declared Jens bond, the health minister and free with mounts who is a former head of the parliamentary group, and he is a real ideological industry of Michael's and spun this to now if either spun or Mets win, then all bets are off no one really expense medical to be able to survive as chancellor till two thousand twenty one till the next elections. If either Mansell spun our elected posse leader, it would just be completely impossible combination. She would understand that as well. And there's no way that she would persist in trying to cling onto the job of chancellor if one of. Ideological rivals gets the party leadership say ideological rivals. What are the key splits? Welsh fawn for example, walls, her most ferocious critic during the whole refugee crisis. He really was very outspoken against her sort of liberal policy of keeping Germany's borders open during the crisis, which led to an influx of more than a million migrants as we know mainly from the Middle Eastern North Africa. He's been very very critical of that. He's very very hard line on the fact that these people now have to integrate, and if they don't then they should be kicked out. He's sort of taking a very hotline. So almost like AFDC line alternates of Germany, this all the sort of anti immigration line. Although I must say since he became a minister became health minister in March. He's hot down a bit Matt's. Also, he was always very strongly opposed to Merckel and the way she essentially pushed the party to the left or to the the centre-left of German politics bay. Basically, he represents disgruntled older generation in although he's not so old himself. But he'd represents that sort of group of conservatives women the who have resented the way Mackel has tried to modernize the party. They wanted to return to its conservative roots? Now, Ben, obviously one of the characteristics of the Merckel era is that Germany's become more and more. Evidently, the dominant force inside the European Union. So the rest of Europe will be watching this with considerable interest and perhaps some nervousness. Yes. I mean, once again, European is a sort of bystanders to German domestic politics, which is becoming all too familiar. Pose for the last several years through the eurozone crisis. Of course, you could remember moments of critical decision making that depended on voices and debates like in the Bundestag in Berlin. I'm sure leaders across the continental watching incredibly closely to see what comes out of the CD you leadership contest. And then the stability of the government. If mocal really wants to stay till twenty twenty one it's quite likely that will have lots more instability, particularly within the grand coalition from the SPD. So this may well be a German government that does very little the next three years, which will be bad news for your how bad though, I mean, can you actually cope with a period of stasis where nothing much happens? Yes. It could I suppose I've just been in Paris. And I think there's a very strong French view, for example, that this is actually quite a benign period of relative economic growth. And actually, this is the time precisely the time to fix problems, particularly in the yours in for the next crisis, which may not be not far away. And I suppose the other big threat. Of course, he's the populist insurgency, which is really gaining traction across the continent. And I think certainly the view in Paris is that Europe can't afford to just sit there and do nothing has to move, and it has to respond to try and galvanize citizens behind sort of more pro European position and to try and sort of quell this. Insurgency? But I guess the reality is isn't a guy that even under the pretty pro-european. Centrist, Mrs Merkel, the German government had been pretty disappointing as far as the French concerned in responding to some of these more ambitious plans for European integration. Yes. Absolutely. I mean, I think one of the big surprises in a way has been the performance of Schultz. The finance minister here when the coalition treaty was hammered out between the city and the PD in February March that was a very strong European chat to that. Which was basically written by the Fulmer SPD leader Martin Schulz who was himself a former president of the European parliament. It was incredibly strongly pro European very idealistic really sort of buying into the whole macro Mian vision of reform and what's happened since. Then obviously, it was Martin Schulz was kicked out and the currently does, AVI. SP a Turkey not interested in European. Reform more yours and reform all of Schultz's just down to be sort of pale imitation of Wolfgang showing blah in fact, lacking showing blows vision of European integration. So he's been a big disappointment for those who are really hoping that the new German Grand coalition would respond to microns of reform proposals in a positive way. So if anything I suspect, then Ben a new Germany would become actually more introverted because the best you could hope for its continuity from European point of view with a look alike, but if it were spun type figure, you would have a headset used what nationalistic, but a more conservative, more, Germany. I approach I think that's probably right. I mean angular mogul has been chancellor for thirteen years. She's a set at Europe's top table for that long. And even though she has a self been incredibly cautious and conservative in the way that she's handled a lot of European questions. She does have a very strong kind of European. Instinct and sensibility, which perhaps successes won't have to agree that possibly the next chancellor is going to be less pro European than angular Merckel. I suppose the thing that we have to remember though, is that they're not going to be that Euro-sceptic Germany is still a pro European country. It's still very much in Germany's national interests to want to strong Europe. And I don't see us Manipur from the far, right? Fringe with the rise of alternative for Deutschland. Which by the way, looks like it might be plateauing anyway in public support. I don't see a huge shift to the right on the big European question in Germany, and I guess the irony is that even if Germany is losing some of its traditional europhilia, it's never been more powerful in Europe and more central to what's happening inside the and that will only be essentially with Brexit. Oh, that's certainly true, especially with Italy locked in a showdown with Brussels and other Member States and intentions with the east Spain, which seems to. To be fairly politically weak and Britain. Obviously leaving the big question is whether Emmanuel Macron can recover popularity in France, and whether he can bring his reforms to bear to convince Germany and convince public opinion on political opinion in Germany that reform is for real. And therefore, you know, Germany should take his ideas for your zone reform, for example, more seriously and finally guy I mean, maybe it's a little bit too soon to be writing the victories for the mobile era. But what do you think she will be remembered for him and she's been in power long time? I think essentially she'll be remembered for many things I mean, it's interesting when people sort of looked back they look at the great chance of Germany's postwar history people like Konrad Adenauer who really anchored Germany in the western lines helmet Kohl who achieved German reunification, and it's interesting. You know, she's been chancellor for thirteen years. And when you ask people, so what is she going to be remembered for people? Struggled to come up with announcer. And the funny thing is that a lot of people think it and Haman Han than say, the refugee crisis and actually that in a way might be a lasting legacy. I mean, I think she would resent that because it wasn't a hit finest hour. But I think in many ways the fact that she stood up for the idea of open borders for the idea of humanitarianism and for the liberal world order in a way in her response to that crisis. I think that says a lot about her. And I think also says a lot about how she changed Germany because I think that approach would never have happened before she had become chancellor, the German response to the refugee crisis. Will I think be remembered in decades to come as an extraordinary moment in recent European history and Harada was absolutely critical.
