Leaders of Germany’s Social Democrats, Greens, and Liberals unveiled a coalition pact on Wednesday. Getting three political parties to agree on anything is tough. It runs to more than 170 pages of which a 27-page chapter is devoted to “Germany’s responsibility for Europe and the world.” DGAP experts give their initial reactions to key aspects relating to foreign and security policy, tech, climate, China, and more.
Germany’s 2021 federal election marks both the end of Angela Merkel’s 16-year chancellorship and the realignment of German foreign and security policy. It presents an ideal opportunity for DGAP to offer the future German government constructive recommendations for action based on its foreign policy expertise on geo-economics, technology, climate, migration, international order, and security. We invite you to engage in dialogue with us through the publications and events in this dossier.
