At this year’s Berlin Foreign Policy Forum about 200 high-ranking politicians, government representatives, experts and journalists have gathered to discuss core issues of German and European foreign policy. Around half of the participants are from Europe, the Middle East, Asia and the United States.
This year’s Forum is focusing on Germany, Europe, the Middle East and Asia. How can Europe develop a joint approach to dealing with refugees? How can we prevent relations between Russia and Europe from further deteriorating? What are the chances of a new regional order developing in the Middle East? And which opportunities could help diffuse the tense security situation in Asia?
The Federal Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier opened the Forum on 10 November with a speech on perspectives of German and European foreign policy.
The Berlin Foreign Policy Forum is available as a live video stream.
