The Young Network of the German Council on Foreign Policy

Are international relations and the complex foreign policy issues just for elder statesmen? Never. The Young DGAP network, founded in 2008, brings together students and young professionals to look closely at the latest developments in international policy.

The Young DGAP is attractive to younger DGAP members who are seeking ways to expand their knowledge as well as to actively participate in intergenerational dialogue. Our focus is on forging networks and exchange with experienced foreign policy practitioners. We organize an average of 75 events per year.

Firmly anchored in Berlin, the home of Germany’s foreign policy community, there are also Young DGAP branches in several other regions of Germany. Event teams are currently active in Baden-Württemberg, Frankfurt, Hamburg, Munich, North Rhine-Westphalia, and Saxony.

For reduced membership fees, members of the Young DGAP enjoy full access to the entire German Council on Foreign Relations (DGAP), including its prestigious network and program offerings. In addition, several exclusive programs are geared specifically toward the Young DGAP, including special event formats and a mentor program.
