The Federal Republic of Germany is one of the most important players in Europe and the world, and its position and positioning largely influence the behavior of other participants in a complex system of international relations. How dependent is its foreign policy course on the domestic political situation in the Federal Republic of Germany itself, which is becoming less and less predictable with the fragmentation of the party system? Will Angela Merkel’s departure from the post of Chancellor cause a paradigm shift in Germany’s foreign policy or will it cause only minor adjustments, in one direction or another, primarily due to external circumstances? The author believes that no fundamental changes can be expected, since a stable democratic state is also distinguished by a stable foreign policy. This is all the more true of modern Germany – a parliamentary republic, in which executive power is controlled by parliament, consisting of elected representatives of the people, and there is a consensus on major international issues in society.
