*Since 2019, this website has been dormant, as Almut became State Secretary to the First Mayor of Hamburg.  She is in charge of all foreign relations with the city federal state, including with the German National Government and the European Union.  You can contact Almut in her official Hamburg governmental capacity here, or in her personal capacity via the contact form below.

Previous to her position as State Secretary in Hamburg, Almut headed up the Berlin office for the European Council on Foreign Relations (ECFR), an independent pan-European think tank.  As a senior foreign policy analyst, she worked particularly on European Union affairs and on Germany’s role in Europe. 

Almut started her academic policy analysis career at the Centre for Applied Policy Research (CAP) at the LMU University of Munich (1999-2008). From there she moved to London, focusing on EU-Middle East relations, and starting up her own online foreign policy brief on Germany, the Berlin Brief (2008-2010). From London she went on to be appointed as Director of the Europe Programme at the German Council on Foreign Relations (DGAP, 2010-2015), moving on in 2015 to head the office of the European Council on Foreign Relations in Berlin.

Almut, fluent in English, French and German, has published widely on European affairs and foreign and security policy with academic fellowships taking her to Renmin University in Beijing, the Al Ahram Center for Political and Security Studies in Cairo and the American Institute for Contemporary German Studies in Washington DC, where she remains a non-resident fellow.

She is a frequent commentator across German and international media, and a passionate moderator with a wealth of experience in chairing and facilitating debates on European affairs. In this role she has been working with the German Federal President’s Office, German and European foundations and parties, the Federal Agency for Civic Education (Bundeszentrale für politische Bildung), KfW Bank, and the Akademie der Künste Berlin, among others.

Almut’s civilian commitments extend to being a board member of Women in International Security (WIIS.de) as well as a member of the 14th Advisory Board on Internal Leadership (Innere Führung) of the German Federal Ministry of Defence.
