YouTube Interview on the Zeitenwende in German Foreign Policy

Against the backdrop of my recent Politics and Governance article “Zeitenwende: German Foreign Policy Change in the Wake of Russia’s War against Ukraine” I was interviewed for an episode of the Let’s Talk About podcast series by Cogitatio Press. The episode was moderated by Rodrigo Silva. The video is available on YouTube. The publisher’s website also features an audio version. In the interview I speak about the main findings of my research on German foreign policy, which indicate that the country has undergone an international orientation change, based on Chuck Hermann’s criteria for this classic concept of Foreign Policy Analysis (FPA). That said, due to the ongoing and incomplete nature of the policy processes (and domestic decisions, including the recent constitutional ruling on the federal budget), it is uncertain whether the initiated changes will be permanently implemented.
