The Balkans and German geopolitics in change

The changes that caused  the elections in Germany, in many ways, have a common denominator which is a silent revolution.

In this essay, an important place will be devoted to the “rational German” position in the efforts to return Germany to the carpet of geopolitics, emphasizing its role in the Western Balkans.

In the “new concert of the great powers”, which, unlike that of the 19th century, has already taken the planetary extension. Precisely, the withdrawal of the West from Afghanistan has proved emerging new disputed regional areas, which for, the superpowers of the time still have not reached full agreement on their division, as they once did in the Europe of the 19th-century. In this context of clashes, Southeast Europe for the EU is becoming a neuralgic point. In this course of events, the time is in favor of Germany to determine its true value as far as the Western Balkans and the future of the EU are concerned.

emerging new disputed regional areas.


The recent parliamentary elections in Germany last week are one of the events that will mark a historic turning point in Europe. Prominent German political thinkers, geopolitologists and geoeconomists, not without legitimate concern and curiosity, ask the legitimate question: What direction will Berlin’s foreign and security policy take in the post-Merkel era?

As curious as Germany’s partners, allies, and competitors are, there exists an obvious dose of concern for the expected direction of Berlin. In terms of this, see the relative victory of the SPD (Social Democrats) and the historic defeat of the CDU/CSU (popular conservatives), which have been receiving full attention. Dozens, if not hundreds, of analyses and comments, have been published that make the course of the German ship in the turbulent sea of modern geopolitics more predictable.
