Federal Academy for Security Policy

The Federal Academy for Security Policy (BAKS) is the Federal Government’s inter-ministerial institution for further training in security policy.
It promotes a comprehensive understanding of Germany’s security objectives and the Comprehensive Approach. The Academy has three areas of activity: Teaching/Further Training, International Cooperation/Expert Meetings, and Communications.

Mission

The Federal Academy for Security Policy (BAKS) is the Federal Government’s central and inter-ministerial institution for further training in security policy. Its task is to promote a comprehensive understanding of national and international security policy, and Germany’s long-term security policy goals. The work of the BAKS is characterised by an interdisciplinary approach and its practical orientation. The Academy’s portfolio is tailored to audiences from the world of politics, the public sector, the scientific community, the private sector and civil society, and it also addresses the general public.

The BAKS is organisationally subordinate to the Federal Ministry of Defence, but is under the technical supervision of the Federal Security Council. At the BAKS, an inter-ministerial team from seven Federal Ministries and the German Chancellery works together under one roof.

The BAKS holds more than 70 events every year. Courses e.g. include the Core Course on Security Policy, the Security Policy Course for Senior Officials, and the Digitalisation and Security Policy Workshop, and are open to selected specialist and senior personnel. The BAKS organises a broad range of expert meetings and conferences giving participants an opportunity to share their knowledge and experience at a national and international level, e.g. the German Forum on Security Policy, and the annual Get Together for young executive personnel from different government departments. By providing information opportunities and discussion formats such as a student conference, citizen dialogue events, and the Security Policy Working Paper series, the BAKS not only reaches out to social multipliers, but also directly to the general public.
