The world is changing. The Gustav Stresemann Institute prepares politics, companies, associations and institutions for such change, and helps to find answers to urgent questions. What role will our values play as ideas compete on a global scale? Democracy, the freedom of the press, the rule of law, peace? How can global talks be constructive when different countries play the game by different rules? What role do religions and cultures play? Why do regions succumb to bloody civil war? Is the Cold War coming back? How powerless are the United Nations? Last but not least – what global role will Germany and Europe play in the 21st century? The Gustav Stresemann Institute concerns itself with questions and issues like these. Labelled the “Think Tank by the Rhine”, the Gustav Stresemann Institute in Bonn is a leading institution which involves itself in various ways in current political debates, and is heard by the general public as a key voice.
