On the Reorientation of the Bundeswehr - Meeting the Challenges Ahead
The author of this paper contends that the dynamically changing global security environment is a key parameter for the reorientation of the Bundeswehr. The reform package, outlined by the German Defense Minister in June 2011 is ambitious and radical, with its most important step the suspension of conscription. In order for the Bunderswehr to fulfill its tasks in a constantly altering complex and dynamic security environment, its internal structure must ensure it can adapt to new levels of ambition and retain its build-up capacity.
