After Russia's war of aggression on Ukraine, which was perceived as a "turning point" in Germany, both practical security policy and the academic discussion of security policy issues have received a great deal of attention in recent years. But has this proclaimed change in political awareness been accompanied by a transformation in substance? What developments are likely to continue to shape German security policy? The planned anthology invites the reader to systematically present current and future challenges, trends, and perspectives of security policy research after the high-profile proclamation of a turning point in time, to scientifically reflect on actual changes, and to discuss developments beyond the German discourse of the years 2022/2023 in an evidence-based manner.

In-depth contributions on methodological, theoretical, and empirical issues arewelcome, covering the breadth of the debate from defense policy issues to human security, from scientific-conceptual disputes to policy-practicalimplementation.
