Helmut Anheier, adjunct professor of social welfare and public policy, wrote an opinion article for Project Syndicate about Germany’s new plan to adopt epochal change in order to engage in foreign policy in a more active manner. The country has signaled that it will focus on a more feminist foreign policy and take a less ambiguous position in regard to doing business with autocrats. However, the likelihood of Germany following through with this plan is in question, Anheier said, pointing to the country’s past record of falling short on similar aspirations. Earlier this year, Germany announced support for Ukraine but has not yet delivered all the aid it promised, and it has also been slow in supporting the women-led protests in Iran. Furthermore, the country’s coalition government has frustrated German voters because of differing political goals within the alliance.
