Sylke Tempel chairing a panel on populism in European elections on 28 September, 2017

In Memoriam: Sylke Tempel

It is with deepest sadness that we mourn the death of Sylke Tempel, political scientist and a friend of the Dahrendorf Forum.

She was a renowned foreign and security policy expert and edited the Berlin Policy Journal and the magazine Internationale Politik, published by the German Council on Foreign Relations (DGAP).

Sylke often collaborated with the Dahrendorf Forum and participated in many of our events and symposia. As recently as 28 September she chaired a panel on populism in European elections in 2017 hosted by the Dahrendorf Forum at the Hertie School. With incisive questions and a quick wit, she expertly led the discussion among the panelists.

She will be deeply missed by the Dahrendorf Team and colleagues all over Europe.
