The DGAP's Research Institute undertakes policy-oriented research at the intersection of operational politics, business, scholarship, and media.
More than thirty foreign policy experts work in ten research programs focusing on: transatlantic relations, European integration, Russia/Eurasia, international security policy, energy policy, global economics, the Middle East, and China.
The DGAP helps foster and moderate the national foreign affairs debate by bringing together high-ranking decision makers from politics and business, scholars, and the interested public in various formats such as conferences, roundtables, and study groups. In addition, DGAP researchers publish analyses on current foreign policy topics and develop concrete approaches.
This work is made possible by a number of notable sponsors, including institutions, foundations, associations, businesses, and generous individuals.
