Revisiting Angela Merkel's Leadership during the Coronavirus Pandemic

Celebrating 15 years in office this November, Angela Merkel is the European Union’s longest serving leader and the world’s longest serving female head of government. Recently, Merkel not only made headlines with her tenure jubilee but even more so with her style of leadership during the coronavirus crisis. Heralded as Germany’s “silver bullet“ of crisis management,1 the 66 year old has been leading by example and many leaders look to her for guidance and inspiration. Particularly for women, it is a promising quest to explore what Angela Merkel has to offer that makes her leadership during the pandemic so remarkable and exemplary.
