German overseas coverage with Christoph Heusgen

German overseas coverage with Christoph Heusgen


Chancellor Olaf Scholz’s well-known Zeitenwende speech aimed to form a brand new political narrative for Germany. But, a 12 months into Russia’s conflict on Ukraine, questions stay concerning the success of this paradigm shift in Germany’s strategic tradition. 

This week, Mark Leonard welcomes Christoph Heusgen, longstanding overseas coverage chief throughout the Merkel years and now chair of the Munich Security Conference. They focus on Western and non-Western reactions to the conflict in Ukraine – and, specifically, the function of Germany. Should Berlin have taken a more durable line in opposition to Russia after 2014? How can Scholz realise his imaginative and prescient for the Zeitenwende? And what’s stopping Germany from partaking extra in growing nations?
