Constructing a German Europe?

Germany's Europe Debate Revisited

Germany’s ambiguous role during the eurozone crisis has stoked fears that a more self-confident and dynamic Germany is threatening the political independence and economic well-being of its neighbors and will lead to a “German Europe”.
