Professor Klaus Neumann Writes for Inside Story: ‘The Germany of 2017’

Professor Klaus Neumann‘s article, ‘The Germany of 2017’, was published on Inside Story recently:

Much of the English-language reporting of German politics since the September national election has centred on two claims: that Germany is adrift without a government, and that the country has lurched to the right. It’s true that a new government is yet to be formed, and it’s unarguable that the far-right populist Alternative für Deutschland, or AfD, won seats in the Bundestag. But that doesn’t mean that either of those broader claims is correct…

Professor Neumann has edited or written ten books, including Not the Way It Really Was(1992), Shifting Memories (2000) and Refuge Australia (2004), winner of the 2004 Human Rights Award (Non-Fiction). His most recent books include Across the Seas (2015), about Australia’s historical response to refugees, which won the 2016 CHASS Australia Prize, and Historical Justice and Memory (2015), co-edited with Janna Thompson and published by University of Wisconsin Press. Klaus has also written radio plays and numerous articles, and is a regular contributor to Inside Story. Most recently, he has been working on five issues: responses to refugees and asylum seekers; historical justice; the politics of compassion; the evolution of the right to asylum; and migrants’ published recollections.
