  • Overview

    The module examines the main actors, issues and concepts in German post-war foreign policy. Building on theories and instruments of Foreign Policy Analysis, this option investigates domestic, international, and cultural forces that have shaped the formulation and implementation of German foreign policy. The module places special emphasis on the much-debated question as to whether contemporary German foreign policy after unification is marked by continuity or change and how unification has altered the Federal Republic?s position in the international arena. Issues to be covered include Germany?s role in the EU and its approach to the use of military force.
