At time of great geopolitical transformations, Germany remains without a clearly defined position about the role it wants or should play on the international stage. Convinced of its responsibility towards other people, but very reluctant to take on a position of leadership, it oscillates in the affirmation of its national interests. However, its growing economic power tacitly suggests a more determined voice in foreign affairs, increasingly perceived as "Weltinnenpolitik" (global domestic policy) as Willy Brandt, then Chancellor of the Federal Republic of Germany, anticipated in 1973 before the General Assembly of the United Nations, when West Germany was integrated into this institution. In this context, the article reflects on possible routes for German foreign policy today.
