Taking Global Responsibility!

What Germany and Europe can set against the US Government's Isolationism

The Center for American Progress based in Washington, D.C. and adelphi, Berlin, published a joined policy paper on the “Need for new Alliances?”. This analysis outlines courses of action for Germany and Europe in the areas of climate, security and development.

Focus lies on establishing a viable linkage between climate protection, security policy and the UN´s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of the Agenda 2030.

A central challenge is to fill the management vacuum left behind by the political withdrawal of the United States from international institutions and obligations. Germany and Europe can counter the US government’s isolationism with a global sense of responsibility. Therefore they commit themselves to actively shape international issues of the future.
