Munich Young Leaders Alumni

Today, the Munich Young Leaders (MYL) Alumni Network has over 300 members from more than 70 different countries. Among them are current and former ministers, members of parliament, senior civil servants, commanders and leading political experts from some of the world's most distinguished institutions.

Each year, the German embassies in selected countries nominate up to three potential candidates who are under 40 years of age and have excellent knowledge and experience in foreign and security policy. The Munich Security Conference (MSC) and the Körber-Stiftung then select the international participants from the proposals received. The German MYL are mainly recruited from the Körber Network Foreign Policy, a group of outstanding young professionals from the German government, the Bundestag and various think tanks and companies. We therefore ask for your understanding that unsolicited applications cannot be considered.
