When Gerhard Schröder came to power, his country was depicted as the sick man of Europe. His actions -which often turned the back on his social-democrat roots- still explain today the division in society, the increasing divergence between East and West, rich and poor, politics and society. It cost him his reelection, a risk he was willing to take. However, the radical changes he imposed helped Germany to regain its status.

Through hard work and discipline, Gerhard Schröder rose from humble origin to become one of the most powerful men in Germany.

Today, his political savvy and expertise are sought after in a world increasingly dominated by populist leaders and autocratic states.
