Now that the new German government has been approved by the political parties and can finally begin work, it is time for Angela Merkel to think about her own agenda for the next few years.Merkel should never be underestimated – she is a survivor and could yet see reinvigorated public support and renewed political power.The challenges facing Merkel in Germany's domestic arena have less to do with the economy and much more to do with a growing alienation and anti-establishment temper of some Germans, as witnessed by the political rise of the far-right Alternativ fur Deutschland.Perhaps even more than in Germany, Europe is where Merkel will have the most impact and the greatest legacy.Merkel is also now a global figure.
