Organizational Structure and Funding

Following its statue, new members will have to be co-opted by current members. The Atlantik-Brücke unites members from political parties, the military, business and interest groups, financial institutions and banks of both the U.S. and Germany. It is widely regarded as a major political and economic pressure group and earns criticism due to its far reaching membership, which includes active politicians and elected representatives. The Atlantik-Brücke is affiliated with the Council on Foreign Relations.

Working mode, goals

The Atlantik-Brücke is a private interest organisation, founded short after the foundation of the Federal Republic of Germany (former West Germany). It aims for a enhanced cooperation between the U.S. and Germany on economic, fiscal, security, military and foreign policy issues. The Atlantik-Brücke organizes an conferences, expert discussions, roundtables and backstage talks. It is subdivided into several working groups on special topics.

Cooperations with Non-Think Tanks
