Hans Kundnani - 11 July 2011
Berlin's failure to support intervention in Libya but willingness to arm Saudi Arabia shows the central contradiction in a foreign policy that is increasingly driven by the needs of a geoeconomic power's export industry.
Hans Kundnani - 01 July 2011
It is wrong to think of Germany's assertive response to the eurozone crisis as a simple case of old-fashioned Realpolitik. Berlin's willingness to throw its weight around economically still sits awkardly with reluctance on military issues. In short, Germany is a geoeconomic power.
Historically, internal divisions have caused the EU to be flat-footed in responding to foreign policy crises. But by learning from the EU’s successes and failures, it should be possible to plan coordinated approaches for future crises.
Hans Kundnani - 25 June 2010
The euro crisis seems to have revealed a more inward-looking and nationalistic Germany. But Germany?s shift towards the domestic is more subtle than it appears. And it is certainly not just a recent development.

Despite its structural power at EU level, the German coalition government led by Angela Merkel has failed to come up with a sound response to two of its vital interests: sustainable reform of the euro zone and the refugee question. With elections looming in 2017, can Merkel keep the coalition afloat? Hans Kundnani, Senior Transatlantic Fellow with GMF’s Europe programme, and Mark Leonard, Director of ECFR, discuss.
Prof Lord Giddens, sociologist and former Director of the LSE, and Hans Kundnani, Research Director at ECFR, discuss German power and its implications for the future of the European Union.
Mark Leonard talks to Hans Kundnani, Andrew Wilson and Stefan Meister about the latest events in Ukraine, Germany's Russia policy and how all this is related to eurosceptics.
