Jeremy Cliffe in Berlin presents a special series from the New Statesman's World Review podcast on the German election and its aftermath.
In this final episode, he reviews Germany's new centre-left coalition government and the incoming chancellor Olaf Scholz. What is the government's politics? What are its policy priorities at home and abroad? Who are its most important personalities? And where could the difficulties lie?
To discuss all this he is joined by Jana Puglierin, head of the Berlin office of the European Council on Foreign Relations, and Christian Odendahl, chief economist at the Centre for European Reform.
