International climate policy, sustainability, global health, and migration are permanent fixtures on the United Nations and European Union agendas. Digitalisation and climate policy are transforming not only the economy, but the whole world of work and our entire way of life – with major impacts on governance and core policy fields. For example the EU member states’ recovery plans are shaped by the EU’s Green Deal, sustainable energy policy and the Digital Single Market. All nations will be dealing with the economic and social aftermath of the Covid-19 pandemic for years to come. Promoting good governance and human rights are independent but complementary prongs of German foreign, European and security policy. The tensions between the ideal and material interests of state and non-state actors in Germany and Europe need to be explored analytically and resolved politically.
