In this episode of Just the Chats we take a look behind the curtain of Germany’s past and present in a frank and insightful conversation with the current German Ambassador to Ireland, H.E. Deike Potzel. Our discussion explores 30 years of unity in Germany, lessons learned and recent commemorations of reunification; Germany’s current role as holder of the rotating Presidency of the Council of the European Union (EU), the German perspective on Brexit, the strong German-Irish relationship and the unique role of Germany in the EU.
