Transatlantic Foreign Policy Discourse (compl.)

The Transatlantic Foreign Policy Discourse (TFPD) project allowed SWP to engage practitioners from governments and parliaments on the one hand and think tank researchers and other academic experts on the other hand in a highly fruitful dialogue on a wide range of foreign and security policy challenges. The project sought to raise awareness of multilateral approaches to coping with a number of challenges. Funded through the Key Institutions Program of the German Marshall Fund of the United States from 2002 until 2008, SWP was able to establish self-sustaining working groups under the umbrella theme of »Diverging Views on World Order? Transatlantic Foreign Policy Discourse in a Globalizing World«.

The TFPD project website is available here:
