The world around us is changing. The global order is in turmoil as long-standing political traditions are called into question and institutions on the regional and global level are coming under attack. While some struggle to adjust to an international system in flux, others seek to push the boundaries of the liberal order, pursuing a new distribution of power and putting national political and economic interests ahead of the maintenance of a precarious international order.
How will Europe and Germany adjust to the emerging multipolar world? What tools do they have at their disposal to prevent a deterioration of global order – and what tools are available to pursue national interests? Has Realpolitik come back in style to replace foreign policy ideals? And can diplomacy remain a safeguard for international stability?
