Handbook on Germany’s European Policy published by the German Federal Agency for Political Education

The Institute for European Policy’s Handbook on Germany’s European Policy is now also available in an edition published by the German Federal Agency for Political Education (bpb). With revised entries and additions which take into account devel­op­ments having occurred over the course of the last few months, the Handbook delivers an up-to-date, analytical overview of the actors, insti­tu­tions and processes within Germany’s European policy, its goals and founda­tions, as well as perspec­tives regarding devel­opment in light of newly emerging challenges both inside and outside of the EU.

In times of multiple crises and growing skepticism regarding Germany’s close inter­de­pen­dence with the EU system, the handbook reaffirms that European policy is of excep­tional value and utility for Germany’s political and economic reality and that Germany, precisely because of its impor­tance, has a decisive impact in shaping European integration as well as within the EU’s decision-making processes.
