The recent G20 summit is not the first sign of shifts in the global power structure. The United States under President Trump’s leadership does not see itself as the shaping force at the international level anymore, — whether it is global trade policy, maintaining peace through military and diplomatic means, or climate protection. The question then remains: which states or communities of nations will assume the leading role in the various areas?
What could German foreign policy under these new conditions look like? Which principles and values should serve as its foundation? Which role can the European Union play and which structural changes are necessary? How should Germany react to military conflicts such as the one in Syria? How can Germany design a foreign policy agenda with partners such as Russia, China, or Turkey? We would like to discuss these and other questions with you and our panel guests.
