Abstract:

Since 2001 there has been a sense of malaise within European defense and foreign policy intellectual circles on both sides of the Atlantic, who have questioned Germanys status-quo orientation that relies on a culture of military restraint.as an excuse for not contributing to international missions.1 Due to a confluence of factors, conditions are ripe for a fundamental shift in Germanys national security posture as they re-evaluate their foreign policy and relationship with NATO and the European Union EU.
