The German daily newspaper "taz" reported on the Alternative for Germany (AfD) social policies that include ICAE participation

The party takes a critical view of market intervention to regulate or raise social benefits.

The study analyzed social and economic policy programs, speeches made in the Bundestag, and AfD MPs' voting behavior.
