Can the proposed reforms placate an already divided Eurozone? Sputnik spoke with Peter Schulze, Professor of politics at the University Of Gottingen for more insight on the issue
Sputnik: What will the new reforms entail and do you feel that they will be successful?
Peter Schulze: It will be successful as a means of buying time, but overall it will not solve anything. France is one of the least problematic places regarding the migration crisis because most of the refugees are coming from Italy via Austria, Switzerland and the Balkans, so in this regard there is no improvement.
An improvement could be seen with Merkel and Macron trying to convince the other European countries, because they are both heavyweights, to come to a solution which at least has a European etiquette or sign on it.
All of this could lead to new elections in Germany and basically a change of government.
