The event is organised by the Centre for European Politics at the Institute of International Relations Prague in cooperation with the IASGP.
The discussion will focus on the determinants and constraints in German foreign policy, as well as the manner in which academics and pundits understand them. In particular, the experts will discuss the nature of German power, Germany’s relations with Russia and other great powers, and the changing understanding of the role of military force in German foreign policy.
The discussion will be based on three recent publications: Liana Fix’s book on “Germany’s Role in European Russia Policy: A New German Power?” (Palgrave, 2021), Frank Stengel’s monograph on “The Politics of Military Force: Antimilitarism, Ideational Change, and Post-Cold War German Security Discourse” (University of Michigan, 2020), and a special issue of the German Politics journal on “International Theory and German Foreign Policy” (2021), co-edited by Jakub Eberle and Alister Miskimmon.
The event will be livestreamed on Facebook here (the link will only be activated shortly before the start of the event).
