Defense Ministers’ Forum Indo-Pacific: Japan and Germany's Engagement in the Region

(German-Japanese) Virtual Discussion with Minister of Defense Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer and Minister of Defense Nobuo Kishi

(This is a German-Japanese session) Strengthening defense cooperation between Germany and the countries in the Asia Pacific region has been one of the priorities on the agenda of the German Minister of Defense, Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer. Japan, as a steadfast value partner to Germany, has been advocating a free and open Indo-Pacific for over a decade and regularly emphasizes the multilateral protection of a ruled-based order with partners and like-minded nations. Both, Germany’s Indo-Pacific Guidelines and Japan’s concept of a Free and Open Indo-Pacific (FOIP) recognise the importance of international law and norms to prevent instability, conflict or a disruption in the maritime domain of the Indo-Pacific region. The policy guidelines address the existential security concerns of Germany’s long-standing partners. Germany pledges to contribute diplomatic responses and offers tangible contributions to its partners in the region. What are the goals of the recently published Indo-Pacific guidelines of the German federal government and how could an implementation look like in the range of security and defense policy? Moreover, what could be possible joint responses to threats to the ruled-based order in the region imposed by third parties? What role does Japan expect Germany to play in the region?


“Together, Make Europe strong again”

One year into the new EU commission and the new challenges ahead of Europe

As Europe is struggling with the coronavirus pandemic it faces challenges on an epic scale. Not just the recovery seems far, but even the foundation and principle values of the European integration such as freedom of movement have been put into jeopardy. The pandemic poses challenge and will definitely have a big impact on key policies including future enlargement and the neighbourhood policy. Much lies on the shoulder of both the German Presidency and the new EU Commission. It has been one year into the term of the present EU Commission, which is a good occasion to look back the first year and at the same time, to look ahead. Together, make Europe strong again – says the motto of the present EU presidency under Germany. When it was adopted, probably no one had thought that this would be so timely and accurate in the middle of the multifaceted challenges posed not only by the dramatically changing security landscape around the globe, but the COVID pandemic that had disrupted not just social and economic activity but the fundamental freedoms of the European integration.

Shift by Eastern European states from pro to anti-China following China’s show of support for Russia; • EU’s endeavour to seek tighter and more robust defense cooperation as a part of an effort to secure the strategic autonomy of the bloc; development of stronger defense cooperation between the EU and NATO.
