For the first time in its history, Germany has published a National Security Strategy. In his foreword, Chancellor Scholz emphasises the importance of partnerships “with the up and coming countries of Asia, Africa and America”. How exactly these partnerships are to be designed and what opportunities arise from this, however, is not further elaborated.

At the Bonn Symposium 2023, international experts from politics, academia and civil society will join us to discuss the implications of the Security Strategy for Germany’s international cooperation, how countries beyond the main global players (particularly in Africa) view the Strategy and how Germany can and should shape its relations with them in a partnership-based and sustainable manner.
