Körber Emerging Middle Powers Initiative
The aim of our Körber Emerging Middle Powers Initiative (KEMP) is to promote dialogue between Germany and emerging middle powers. By means of an annual survey, the initiative also contributes to a deeper understanding of geopolitical perspectives in countries that belong to this grouping, such as Brazil, India, and South Africa. In addition, KEMP brings together experts and decision makers from those countries and other emerging middle powers with their German counterparts to contribute to their active exchange.
With their growing political, economic and demographic weight, countries like Brazil, India, and South Africa are key players for global problem solving. The Russian invasion of Ukraine showed that in Germany, among other places, geopolitical perspectives, foreign policy traditions, and national interests of emerging middle powers are often not assessed in a realistic manner. The Körber Emerging Middle Powers Initiative contributes to a deeper understanding of these perspectives, traditions and interests by means of an annual multi-country survey with experts and decision-makers in emerging middle powers and enables their mutual exchange with Germany by bringing them together in various dialog formats.
