David McAllister married in a kilt, supports Rangers, drinks Irn-Bru, and speaks English with a gentle Scottish lilt, all of which might not be so unusual were it not for the fact that he is currently one of the leading figures at the heart of German politics.

Born in Berlin to a British father and a German mother, Mr McAllister is the first dual German-British citizen to hold prominent public office. A lawyer by profession, Mr McAllister served as Prime Minister of Lower Saxony from 2010 until 2013 and has been Party Chairman of the Christian Democratic Union (CDU) in Lower Saxony since 2008 and Member of the European Parliament since 2014. He was recently elected as Vice President of the European People’s Party (EPP). Mr McAllister has often been described as a close confidant of Angela Merkel, acting as an intermediary between the German Chancellor and the British Prime Minister David Cameron.

The Cambridge University German Society proudly presents David McAllister as our final speaker of this Michaelmas Term. The topic of his talk will be: ‘The UK and Germany – Active Partners in Europe’. There will also be time for questions.

Please note that the event will be held in English.

Everyone welcome! We look forward to seeing you there!
