This chapter provides an overview of German foreign policy, and Germany's place in the international system, during and after the Cold War. It then shows that the "German Problem" was a major foreign policy concern not only for the German governments but also for the other powers in Europe, as well as across the Atlantic Ocean. By framing the analysis around the concept of the "German Problem", the chapter examines the transformations in German foreign polices over the past 150 years but with a special focus on the period after the end of the Cold War. It argues that Germany, despite being more influential in European affairs after rather than during the Cold War, remains a status quo power that only reluctantly assumes leadership. The chapter concludes that the old "German Problem" no longer exists.
