Germany in the Eyes of the World
How is Germany perceived abroad? What are the prevailing expectations and fears given the current world situation?
After evaluating 154 interviews with representatives from the worlds of politics, business, science and research and civil society in 24 countries, this is clear: in an increasingly turbulent world, Germany’s stable structures, economic strength and strong sense of values make the country more popular than ever. As an advocate of Europe and a mediator in international conflicts, respondents would like to see Germany act more decisively and take a leading role – without acting alone or in an aggressive manner.
