Germany’s Security Policies in the Baltic Sea Area

  • Axel Krohn
Chapter

Abstract

At present, the political developments in Europe clearly indicate a shift towards a further Europeanisation of security, combined with an intensifying process of European integration — both having considerable impact on German political affairs. Besides, there are also clear movements towards regionalisation as well, i.e. ‘a complex network of bi- and trilateral and other regional co-operation dealing, among other things, with various security and defence questions’ (Danish Commission 1995: 7). This describes the basic political setting, where Germany has to define its security policy orientation.
