New Power, New Responsibility: Elements of a German Foreign and Security Policy for a Changing World October 17, 2013 / Markus Kaim , Constanze Stelzenmueller


The Project

In the context of the global financial and debt crisis, Germany has become the object of heightened expectations. Many neighbors and partners look to Berlin for more leadership and action in questions of European and international affairs. The new government in Berlin will have to deal responsibly with Germany’s new power and increasing expectations of German leadership.

In light of these challenges, the German Marshall Fund of the United States (GMF) and the Stiftung Wissenschaft und Politik (SWP – German Institute for International and Security Affairs) assembled 51 experts on foreign and security policy from the Bundestag, government, academia, business, foundations, think tanks, media, and non-governmental organizations in the fall of 2012. They discussed key future challenges for German foreign and security policy in a series of conferences and workshops through mid-2013. The project was funded by the Policy Planning staff of the German Foreign Ministry, and was jointly lead by Dr. habil. Markus Kaim (SWP) and Dr. Constanze Stelzenmüller (GMF).

The Report

The outcome of the experts’ deliberations is a report entitled “New Power, New Responsibility” (“Neue Macht, Neue Verantwortung”). It discusses Germany’s role in the international order and in Europe, its strategic relationships and its security policy, and makes recommendations for future policy in all four fields. The paper reflects the consensus but also the dissent in the experts’ discussions. The analyses and recommendations contained therein are not necessarily shared by all members of the project.
