The Reorientation of the Bundeswehr
Safeguarding National Interests – Assuming International Responsibility– Shaping Security Together
The Defence Policy Guidelines 2011
The Defence Policy Guidelines set the strategic framework for the mission and the tasks of the Bundeswehr as an element of the whole-of-government approach to security. They describe the security objectives and security interests of the Federal Republic of Germany.
Stationing of the Bundeswehr in Germany, October 2011
Based on the Defence Policy Guidelines issued on 27 May this year, key decisions on the capabilities, strength and organisation of the Bundeswehr have since been taken to ensure the operational readiness of the future Bundeswehr and its ability to meet Alliance commitments. A programme accompanying the reforms was developed, including a new reservist concept. Following the suspension of compulsory military service in July and hence the transition to an all-volunteer force, the decision on stationing now marks the final conceptual stage of the reorientation of the Bundeswehr.
