New Responsibilities – Part II

Germany within a Global World

Rising populism and growing isolation of states intensify today’s crisis of multilaterism, putting the newly elected government to test. Now that states are increasingly pulling out of global responsibilities, Germany will only conquer global challenges like environmental protection, security policy and sustainable development shoulder on shoulder with Europe.

What global responsibilities should Germany accept, and could a coalition between CDU, CSU, FDP, and the Greens meet these responsibilities? What consequences can we expect from this new constellation on German foreign policy, its goals and achievements?
