​Scenarios for an Unsettled World

In cooperation with ifa - Institut für Auslandsbeziehungen, the Hertie School is conducting a foresight project which focusses on a key question facing Germany's future foreign policy: what are possible future soft power approaches in terms of narratives, strategies, goals, policies, programmes and activities, given changing geopolitics among major powers, and divergent global scenarios for foreign affairs?

To address these questions, the project puts Germany in a comparative framework of international relations that considers the geopolitics and soft power approaches of the European Union, the United States of America, the United Kingdom, the Russian Federation, The People's Republic of China, and the Republic of India. In each case, we consider the role of soft power in the context of a country's hard and sharp power.

In collaboration with

ECP Monitor: a collaboration between Hertie School and ifa

The External Cultural Policy (ECP) Monitor provides information on key data such as the economy and geopolitical position of selected countries and presents relevant information on their external cultural policy (ECP) measures. Concise country profiles and reports structure quantitative data and contextual information, e.g. on culture and art, language, education, science and research or media.

The ECP Monitor is a collaborative project of the Hertie School with ifa's Library and ifa's Research Programme
