  • Abstract After World War II, in order to restore her international position, Germany participated in European economic integration and Ostpolitik. After the reunification of Germany and the establishment of EU, which represented that the country reinstated and obtained her legal authority with full national sovereignty, Germany has been supportive of the integration of politics and economics of EU in the 1990s. For instance, Germany has been endeavoring to led the development of EU toward a federal system, and helped issue a single currency for European Union, euro. After the 2009 euro debt crisis, due to her deepening EU economic mechanism, stabilizing euro became the top priority of Germany. Furthermore, Germany has been insisting that the strategies responding to the crisis should be kept to promote the federalization the system of EU.
      When facing the continuing euro crisis, Germany took the lead in response to the crisis via suggesting economic and financial strategies such as “Stability and Growth Pact”, “ Fiscal Compact” and “Austerity,” and measures that were aimed at the improvement of competitiveness in EU. By executing the above methods, Germany and EU could go deeper into those indebted countries than applying the “Principle of Subsidiarity” which enhanced the power of EU and Germany beyond the original division of the authority between the member states and EU. The author attempts to analyze how Germany has maintained her national interests by employing the strategies of bilateral and multilateral cooperation in the perspective of “federalism.”
