On the way toward greater responsibility? - Opening of the 15th Annual Foreign Policy Conference

The crisis in Ukraine is confronting German foreign policy with one of its greatest challenges in recent decades. But the debate on the possibilities and limits of German foreign policy cannot be divorced from the context of history.

Together with our international guests, we discussed whether German foreign policy is ready to respond appropriately to current challenges.
