    Foreign Minister Sigmar Gabriel will open this year’s Berlin Foreign Policy Forum

    On December 5, the foreign policy challenges for Germany and Europe will be discussed at this year’s Berlin Foreign Policy Forum by Körber-Stiftung in cooperation with the Federal Foreign Office. What are the consequences of the uncertain domestic situation in Germany for Europe? How will the transatlantic relations develop? Livestream!

    Further topics are: What are the security prospects for Europe’s Eastern and South-Eastern neighborhood? Do historical lessons from the Peace of Westphalia offer possible solutions for conflicts in the Middle East? How can a military escalation with North Korea be prevented?

    Federal Foreign Minister Sigmar Gabriel will open the Berlin Foreign Policy Forum with a keynote speech, followed by a discussion on the future of the European project with Sir Julian King, EU Commissioner for the Security Union, Niels Annen, Member of the German Bundestag, as well as Steven Erlanger, Chief Diplomatic Correspondent for The New York Times in Europe, and French political scientist Dominique Moïsi. Cem Özdemir, Co-Chair of Alliance 90/The Greens, will address key questions of German and European foreign policy in an interview with DER SPIEGEL.

    At the Berlin Foreign Policy Forum, Körber-Stiftung will launch its new foreign policy publication THE BERLIN PULSE. THE BERLIN PULSE includes the results of a new, representative survey on foreign and security policy, asking Germans about their opinion for instance on increasing defense spending or France’s reform proposals for the EU. Prominent international authors, such as Condoleezza Rice, Jens Stoltenberg and Timothy Garton Ash, outline their expectations towards German foreign policy.
