While Brexit negotiations have taken centre stage in the public’s consciousness, the EU faces additional challenges that will shape European politics in 2019. These include defining EU policies towards global powers such as the United States, Russia and China; protecting and developing multilateral institutions; responding to issues of migration and refugee policy; dealing with populist challenges; and responding to the undemocratic tendencies of some of the EU’s member states.

Annen has been a member of the German Bundestag since 2013, and had previously been a member from 2005 to 2009. He has served on the Executive Committee of the Social Democratic Party of Germany (SPD) since 2003.
