For our online July Drink Tank, we welcome John Kampfner to discuss what the UK can learn from Germany.

John Kampfner has had a 25-year career in international public life – spanning media, global affairs, UK politics, education, business, arts and the third sector. He has been the Chief Political Correspondent at the FT and Editor of the New Statesman.

His most recent book, Why the Germans Do It Better, published by Atlantic, is his sixth. It was named top of the political books of the year in The Guardian. It was one of The Economist’s books of the year and it was selected by Chris Patten as his favourite book in the New Statesman. It was chosen by Waterstones as one of its books for 2020.
