Abstract : The unification of Germany in 1990 has raised concerns about the emerging German security policy toward its easternmost neighbors, Poland and the Czech Republic. This study examines German security policy toward these countries since 1990 with a focus on political, economic, and military aspects of the developing German policy. Germany is an advocate of regional stability and economic prosperity by its use of European security institutions, political fora, and emphasis on regional stability that enhances economic growth while promoting demilitarization in the region.
