After being labelled NATO's 'lost nation' or even a 'strategic blackhole' by critics some years ago\, Berlin has assumed a crucial role in NATO's new strategic posture\, including as lead nation of one of NATO's multinational battalions on the Eastern flank. \nYet\, when asked in a Europe-wide survey about their kno wledge about NATO in March 2017\, more than 70 percent of Germans answered to feel rather unfamiliar with the alliance and its work. It seems as if a stronger German engagement in NATO also requires a more proactive debate about the role and purpose of the alliance\, especially - but certainly n ot only - among a younger generation.
