Nancy Faeser is a prominent German lawyer and politician of the Social Democratic Party (SPD), serving as Federal Minister of the Interior and Community in Chancellor Olaf Scholz’s cabinet since 2021. She served as a member of the State Parliament of Hesse from the 2003 elections until 2021. In 2019, she became the party’s leader in Hesse, as well as the leader of the Opposition in the Landtag of Hesse.
Nancy Faeser was born on July 13, 1970 (age 53 years) in Bad Soden, Germany. She is the daughter of German parents and her father Horst (1942-2003) was the mayor of her hometown of Schwalbach am Taunus from 1988 to 2002. She went to elementary school in Schwalbach am Taunus, a suburb of Frankfurt am Main and passed her Abitur at the Albert-Einstein-Gymnasium. From 1990 to 2000 Faeser studied law at the Goethe University Frankfurt.
Faeser completed a semester abroad at the New College of California and graduated with her second state bar exam as a licensed attorney. Until 2000, Faeser worked as a research assistant at Clifford Chance in Frankfurt am Main and then, after her bar exam, worked as a full-time lawyer at Clifford Chance from 2000 to 2007.
Nancy Faeser joined the SPD in 1988. In parliament, Faeser served as a member of the Committee on Legal Affairs (2003–2009), the Committee on the Election of Judges (2003–2013), the Committee on Economic Affairs, Energy and Transport (2014–2018) and the Committee on Internal Affairs (since 2009).
Faeser was her parliamentary group’s spokesperson on internal affairs from 2009. In the 2013 Hesse state election, Faeser was the shadow minister for internal affairs in the campaign team of SPD candidate Thorsten Schäfer-Gümbel. In 2019, she was elected her parliamentary group’s chairwoman.
On 17 June 2023, Faeser was elected as the top candidate on the party list in the upcoming 2023 Hessian state election, and also stood as the party’s direct candidate in the Main-Taunus I electoral district in Frankfurt’s northwestern suburbs, which includes her hometown of Schwalbach am Taunus. However, she won only 14.8% of the direct vote in the district, coming third after CDU (43.9%) and the Greens (16.1%).
She was elected on the party list, but all three federal government parties (SPD, the Greens and FDP) suffered losses in the election, with SPD winning only 15% of the vote in its worst performance in the state history and coming third after CDU (34.6%) and AfD (18.4%). The loss can be attributed to discontent with Scholz’s government, of which she is a minister.
In the negotiations to form a so-called traffic light coalition of the SPD, the Green Party and the Free Democrats (FDP) following the 2021 German elections, Faeser was part of her party’s delegation in the working group on migration and integration, co-chaired by Boris Pistorius, Luise Amtsberg and Joachim Stamp.
After the coalition was successfully formed, on 6 December 2021, it was announced that Faeser would become the first female Interior Minister of Germany in the German government in the Scholz cabinet. In her capacity as minister, Faeser also takes part in the meetings of the Standing Conference of Interior Ministers and Senators of the States (IMK).
Nancy Faeser was nominated by her party as a delegate to the Federal Convention to elect the President of Germany in 2022. In September 2022, the Ministry of the Interior under Faeser closed the “Expert Group on Political Islamism” set up by her predecessor, Horst Seehofer.
Before the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar, when asked in an interview with ARD’s Monitor about the awarding of the event to the country, she emphasized that awarding major sporting events should be linked to compliance with human rights and principles of sustainability, by saying: “There are criteria that must be adhered to and it would be better than tournaments are not awarded to such states.”
In response, the Gulf Cooperation Council condemned the remarks, and Qatar summoned the German ambassador to protest against her comments. Faeser attended Germany’s first game at the World Cup on 23 November where she wore a OneLove armband (a pro LGBTQ+ symbol) which FIFA had prevented players from wearing in the tournament with threats of sanctions.
In March 2023, Faeser participated in the first joint cabinet meeting of the governments of Germany and Japan in Tokyo, chaired by Chancellor Scholz and Prime Minister Fumio Kishida. In April 2023, Faeser appointed an eight-person commission to re-appraise the attack on Israeli athletes and team members at the 1972 Summer Olympics to answer unresolved questions.
In her first year in office, Nancy Faeser extended border checks at crossings from Austria for six months after a rise in the number of migrants arriving via the Western Balkans route. Following her proposal, Germany’s coalition government listed Georgia and Moldova as safe countries of origin in August 2023, to process asylum applications from those countries more quickly and lead to faster deportations for failed applicants.
In September 2023, more than 120 boats carrying around 7,000 migrants from Africa arrived on the Italian island of Lampedusa within 24 hours. Faeser said that “because of the massive influx of migrants to Lampedusa, Berlin wants to once again, voluntarily, accept migrants from Italy, which was recently halted.”
Her remarkable achievements have earned her some luxurious lifestyles and some fancy car trips. She is one of the richest and most influential politicians in Germany. She stands at an appealing height of 1.68m and has a good body weight which suits her personality.
Nancy Faeser is married to Eyke Grüning, they had their wedding in 2012. Her husband is a lawyer and together they have a son. Nancy and her husband live in Schwalbach am Taunus.
