Political career

Bartels has been a member of the German Bundestag since the 1998 federal election. He has since been serving on the Defence Committee. In addition, he was a member of the Committee on Family Affairs, Senior Citizens, Women and Youth between 1998 and 2002.

During his tenure as Member of the German Bundestag, Bartels was a member of the Defence Committee. He currently serves as advisory member of the Commission for Fundamental Values of the Executive Committee of the SPD, a body led by Gesine Schwan.

Domestic security

Bartels has in the past opposed proposals to use the armed force in the event of coordinated terror attacks on a German city, arguing that “police tasks are not the military’s responsibility.“

Relations with the African continent

Bartels has in the past voted in favor of German participation in United Nations peacekeeping missions as well as in United Nations-mandated European Union peacekeeping missions on the African continent, such as in Somalia – both Operation Atalanta (2010, 2011, 2013 and 2014) and EUTM Somalia (2015) –, Darfur/Sudan (2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013 and 2014), South Sudan (2011, 2012, 2013 and 2014), Mali – both EUTM Mali (2014 and 2015) and MINUSMA (2013 and 2014) –, and the Central African Republic (2014). In 2013, he abstained from the votes on extending the mandate for participation in EUTM Somalia and EUTM Mali, and he voted against the participation in Operation Atalanta in 2012.
