Special Edition of the Munich Security Report on German Foreign and Security Policy.
30 years after German unification, the Federal Republic is confronted with enormous challenges. Europe’s security is threatened, Europe’s democracies are on the defensive. The special edition of the Munich Security Report “Zeitenwende | Wendezeiten” provides an overview of the state of German foreign and security policy six years after the “Munich consensus”.
According to the report of the Munich Security Conference, Germany should take a leading role for Europe in close coordination with EU partners – first and foremost with France. The aim is for Europe to act sovereignly and to defend European interests effectively.
To achieve this, Germany had to mobilise more resources in order to remain capable of action in foreign and security policy. This applies equally to diplomacy, development cooperation and defence. The example of the Covid 19 pandemic shows how important the issue of resilience is. In the field of cyber-security, too, Germany and its partners in the European Union must be prepared.
