Kohl employed a multidimensional negotiation strategy as a means to achieve this which involved the following aspects: On the European level Kohl involved himself in reasserting Germany’s commitment to European integration and the transatlantic alliance after unification among Germany’s major partners, namely France, United Kingdom and the United States.

The German government also attempted to offer a vision of Europe which would inject dynamism to the process of European integration and give it new meaning in the post-Cold War era both within Germany and in Western Europe. This was also enabled by the influence of party grandees such as Dregger, Schäuble and Lamers who facilitated the debate both within Germany and through the Group of the European People’s Party in the European Parliament. On the domestic level, Kohl focused on winning the domestic debate in tandem with Genscher for the need to further integrate Germany into multilateral institutions, no longer under the conditions of formal ‘semi-sovereignty’, but with a potentially stronger, more powerful state, with greater demands placed on it to contribute to peace, stability and prosperity in Europe.
