    Foreign Minister Heiko Maas to open Berlin Foreign Policy Forum

    On 26 November Körber-Stiftung in cooperation with the Federal Foreign Office hosts this year’s Berlin Foreign Policy Forum. Under the headline “From Ambition to Action: Making Multilateralism Work”, the Berlin Forum will set the stage for discussions on the most important current foreign policy challenges for Germany and Europe.

    How can Germany strengthen multilateral structures together with its key partners? How will election results in EU member states and in the European Parliament affect European integration and the EU's international role? Can we develop international regimes to control new technologies in warfare and prevent a new global arms race?
    Federal Foreign Minister Heiko Maas will open the Berlin Forum together with the Foreign Minister of the Kingdom of Norway Ine Eriksen Søreide, followed by a discussion about the future of multilateral cooperation.
    At the Berlin Forum, Körber-Stiftung will present the third edition of its foreign policy publication The Berlin Pulse. The Berlin Pulse includes the results of a representative survey on the attitudes of the German public towards foreign policy: Should Germany strive for greater independence from the US in defence matters? Should the EU have been more accommodating during the Brexit negotiations? Is Germany a forerunner in climate policy within the EU? Prominent German and international authors, such as Defence Minister Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer and Jacek Czaputowicz, Polish Foreign Minister, express their hopes and expectations for German foreign policy. You can find all results and contributions here: www.theberlinpulse.org.Follow the livestream of the Berlin Foreign Policy Forum here.
