The Weimar Triangle and The Future Security Order in Europe

By Hanns Seidel Stiftung; PISM

This report is based on a workshop organised by the Hanns Seidel Foundation (HSF) and the Polish Institute of International Affairs (PISM), with participation of experts from the Weimar Triangle states—France, Germany, and Poland. They gathered in Warsaw in November 2023 and were confronted with two different scenarios related to the future of European security: a regime change in Russia followed by an offer of a “reset” with the West and a Ukrainian plea for Weimar security guarantees while the war continues. The seminar proven that it is possible to develop a joint Weimar position, while respecting interests, preferences and “red lines” of each of the three countries. The report presents conclusions and offers recommendations on Weimar Triangle policy towards Ukraine and Russia, derived from the proceedings of the workshop.
