Pagination or Media Count:
Germany holds responsibilities to protect German lives, to promote its national interests, and to help foreign partners. Against the background of current internal transformations in the German Armed Forces Bundeswehr and the challenging security situations around Europe, the established German crisis response concept needs to be critically assessed. This paper, as a precursor for a new German crisis response concept, provides military recommendations to senior leadership for overcoming current shortfalls. Moreover, this precursor of a concept maintains and increases mission essential attributes for crisis response, proposes forward deployment, and organizational changes within the Bundeswehr to provide politics a suitable military instrument of power.
