Berlin Foreign Policy Forum

Since its establishment in 2011, the Berlin Foreign Policy Forum has become the most important annual foreign policy gathering in Berlin. The Berlin Forum convenes high-ranking national and international politicians, government representatives, experts and journalists to discuss the foreign policy challenges for Germany and Europe. In addition to the German foreign policy community, more than half of the participants come from other European countries, the Middle East, Asia and the United States.

The Berlin Forum was initiated on the occasion of the 60th anniversary of the re-establishment of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs after the Second World War and is hosted in cooperation with the Ministry.

The stated aim of the Berlin Forum is to stimulate interest in central foreign policy topics among a wider public in Germany and other countries, and for this reason our pro-active public relations support makes full use of the new media. We place particular emphasis on participation by the younger generation.

Berlin Foreign Policy Forum 2021

22-23 November 2021

Amid a rapidly transforming world marked by a global pandemic, revolutionary technological innovation, and a deteriorating climate crisis, Germany elected a new federal government. Held only months after the election, this year's Berlin Forum offered exclusive insights into Germany’s foreign policy agenda in the post-Merkel era. Discussions also addressed European digital sovereignty, security in the wider neighbourhood, Europe’s position in an intensifying great power competition, and new impulses for climate diplomacy.

The Berlin Pulse

The Berlin Pulse contrasts perspectives on German foreign policy by high-ranking international authors with current German public opinion based on representative surveys. Both the domestic and international expectations focus on the most pressing international challenges Germany currently faces. They elaborate on what German international responsibility should entail.

The Berlin Pulse is published annually on the occasion of the Berlin Foreign Policy Forum.
