The Berlin Pulse is our annual foreign policy publication. It juxtaposes contributions by high-ranking international authors with a public opinion survey on the foreign policy views of the German population.

Our annual publication The Berlin Pulse addresses the most pressing foreign and security policy issues from different perspectives: What expectations do international politicians and experts have of Germany's role in Europe and the world? And how do these expectations differ compared to foreign policy positions of the German public? In cooperation with Pew Research Center, a nonpartisan fact tank based in Washington, D.C., The Berlin Pulse also measures how publics on both sides of the Atlantic evaluate the transatlantic relationship and common challenges and developments they face, such as climate change, the digital transformation or a rising China.

The Covid-19 pandemic, German federal elections, and Russia's invasion of Ukraine: political events and crises have an impact on public opinion in Germany. Our The Berlin Pulse special surveys examine to what extent these far-reaching events affect the foreign policy positions of the German public.
