The Idea

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.
