German Atlantic Association e.V.
The German Atlantic Association organizes high-ranking national and international public events, expert talks and conferences on security and defense policy. Politicians, diplomats, economic leaders, scientists and high-level military personnel are guest speakers in seminars, panels and conferences on a regular basis.
Since the Paris Agreements through the Cuban missile crisis and the Prague Spring up to the fall of the Berlin Wall and the breakdown of the Warsaw Pact, NATO has been a constant in German foreign and security policy.
The German Atlantic Association has accompanied this partnership for more than 50 years. The Association’s mandate is to promote a broader and deeper understanding of the purpose of the Atlantic Alliance and of the politics of NATO.
The Association is an independent, non-partisan organization, supported by the majority of the parliamentary groups of the German Bundestag. The members of its Executive Board reflect the broad political support beyond party affiliations.
