Jakub Eberle for Foreign Policy Magazine

Jakub Eberle, Ph.D., a member of the Department of International and Diplomatic Studies, has published the article in the prestigious Foreign Policy Magazine.

“Germany has often been criticised for its supposedly pacifist foreign policy, especially in connection with its relationship with Russia. This essay argues that this is a myth since post-WW2 Germany has always prepared for war. Berlin’s policies have not been shaped by pacifist principles, but rather by the liberal beliefs in the virtues of diplomacy, trade, and fiscal discipline.”
