Considered to be a major success of the young Federal Republic, Ostpolitik still shapes Berlin's foreign policy and influences Germany’s relations with Russia and China. Such an approach, however, is based on an inaccurate and misleading interpretation of the central tenets and aims of the Cold War rapprochement strategy.

The German Council on Foreign Relations (DGAP) is Germany’s network for foreign policy. As an independent, non-partisan, and nonprofit membership organization, think tank, and publisher the DGAP has been promoting public debate on foreign policy in Germany for over 50 years.

The DGAP publishes the foreign policy magazine IP. The IP appears in German as a bimonthly print magazine and in English as an online magazine for German and European foreign policy.

IP Journal is the source for a German perspective on important foreign affairs issues, as well as in-depth analysis on central questions of German and European foreign policy from renowned authors and experts in and outside of Germany.
