Mission

The Federal Government receives the information it needs to make political decisions via state authorities, as well as from the media and academic and other institutions.

However, for a number of countries and topics covered, this information has proved inadequate. In the case of foreign and security policy there is a constant need for specific, reliable and accurate information concerning developments in other countries. The Bundesnachrichtendienst uses intelligence resources of its disposal to collect information unobtainable by any other means. This information is contributes to foreign and security policy decision-making at national level and helps to protect German interests all over the world.
