Introduction:

When Angela Merkel, Chancellor of Germany for more than ten years, Forbes-crowned most powerful woman in the world, and main actor in the Euro Crisis, the Greek Debt Crisis and the Climate Crisis, was holding her 2015 Summer Press Conference, her barely hidden tiredness struck the observer's eye. It was late August and Merkel was talking about the latest crisis she was involved in; about the massive influx of refugees and asylum seekers that was putting increasingly more pressure on governments across Europe, about the necessity of transnational solution approaches, about Islam and the almost epidemic spread of xenophobia and hate throughout the whole of Germany. She knew that she had to take a firm stance sooner or later: "In most, if not all crises, the moment arrives when a single man or woman must make faithful choices about the government's course of action". Without any doubt, Merkel's moment was there as her remarks culminated in a short sentence which has been repeated innumerable times since then, sending out a message of willpower and helplessness at the very same moment: "Wir schaffen das" (We will manage it).
