Established Players and Outsiders
in Politics

There are no longer two large parties dominating the scene, but the German voters’ election has become more diverse. Meüs van der Poel and Anja Mutschler explain how the world systems theory helps to understand the outcomes of the current federal election and the transition of power from established political players to outsiders.

German lobby regulations
urge for a new approach

Meüs van der Poel states that he has been like a fish in the water in Berlin, since the run-up to the German EU Council presidency and the preparations for the new term of government in Germany. In his expert statement, he shares his opinion on what the new Lobby Register will mean for lobbyists and agencies: “The wind of change towards lobbying in Berlin urges for a new approach. The new transparency rules force lobbyists and their agencies to innovate. A new era along the Spree is shining.”

COVID-19 and labor market relations:
give the German Government a fixed role!

It is hard to predict the economic consequences of the pandemic, but it will surely hit the German and the Dutch labor market. How could the pandemic’s impact on the labor market be minimized? In his Expert Statement, Meüs van der Poel asks German politicians to be more courageous and to take a closer look at the Netherlands: “As in the Netherlands, give the German Federal Government a fixed role in labor market relations! German politicians should have the courage to move from dual consultations to triangular labor market relations. No guts, no glory!”
