Far-right groups gain ground in Sweden and Germany amid influx of immigrants

MALCOLM BRABANTE:

Around a million immigrants arrived in Germany in 2015. Chancellor Merkel has consistently defended her pro-refugee policies, but has now been punished by voters who believe she ignored their concerns.

Chancellor Merkel has promised to listen to the people who voted for the AFD and says she will try to win them over with what she calls good politics. But she will not approve of having the party in her coalition.

But the chancellor needs to find new partners who are prepared to get tough on immigration.

As she tries to forge a coalition, the chancellor has agreed to put an annual cap on the number of immigrants at 200,000, something she has previously refused to do. But will it be enough to attract the people who abandoned her in the elections?

A question for Werner Patzelt, a political scientist at the University of Dresden.
