Deutschland und Russland 2030:
Four scenarios. What will relations between Germany and Russia in 2030 look like?
A team of 20 Germans and Russians have produced 4 scenarios, to be presented in Berlin on 26 June 2013 and to be discussed with Frank-Walter Steinmeier, the chairman of the SPD parliamentary group.
The German-Russian relations are in an identity crisis: While in Germany, one wonders whether the Russian policy of recent years was based on false premises, in discussed in Russia over the strategic direction of foreign policy. Is the idea of a modernization partnership failed? And is, even in the face of the crisis of the European Union, the future of Russia is not likely in the Asia-Pacific region?
The Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung would revive this debate in both countries by a discussion of possible development paths for the German-Russian relations. What scenarios are conceivable for the future of relations in 2030? That was the central question under which the FES invited a team of 20 German and Russian students, scientists and representatives from politics, business and management to an intensive discussion process. After four months of work, the team settled on four possible scenarios. To present the results, we hereby invite you to attend.
The project was conducted in cooperation with the European University Viadrina (Frankfurt / Oder) and the Ural Federal University, Yekaterinburg. The patrons have taken over the former Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier and Igor Ivanov.
