BERLIN : Germans want less international engagement in global crisis hotspots, especially in military missions, and instead favour promoting human rights and environmental causes, a foreign ministry-sponsored survey showed Tuesday. The poll found that some 60 percent of Germans preferred “restraint” when it comes to “taking responsibility in international crises”, compared to around 37 percent who favoured “greater engagement”. The result - which reverses the results of a similar survey 20 years ago - may dampen the hopes of some German politicians for Europe’s biggest nation to play a more active role in military foreign policy.
