Since 1961 eminent international politicians and experts have met at the Bergedorf Round Table to discuss fundamental questions pertaining to German and European foreign and security policy in small and intimate groups.

The Round Table provides foreign policy decision-makers with a forum for a frank exchange of views in which they are not subject to the constraints and pressures of everyday life. Here they are able to develop new ideas and policy alternatives in an intimate and informal atmosphere.

Today, the Bergedorf Round Table focuses on perspectives of German and European foreign policy in three regions: Asia, Europe and the Middle East.

Hitherto more than 3,000 politicians, government representatives and experts from Europe, Asia, the Middle East and the US have participated in more than 170 Bergedorf Round Tables.

“The Bergedorf Round Table is a training camp for all who are prepared to cross the boundaries of their own discipline, political party and interests in order to learn by confronting the different experiences and perspectives of others.”

Chairman of the Bergedorf Round Table until November 2014
