Abstract

In the course of the so-called ‘economic and financial crisis’ from 2008 onwards, there has been a fierce debate about the role and purpose of the European Union. It was led in politics and the media just as in academia. The economic usefulness of the Euro has been discussed, and the political implications of a fostered European unification. Most often, the state of Europeanization has been presented as being without alternatives: no Europe without Greece; no Euro without Greece; no way back to the nation state in its old form. As a result, the debate on Europe was largely narrowed down to the very questions of the immediate crisis, namely economics and fi nance. Only a few voices held that the crisis in fact was one of politics, not of economics. And only late did politicians mention again that Europe is more than the EU. Alternative views of Europe, however, were scarce and often presented full of consequences. It thus came without much surprise that the lacking imaginative power of politicians as well as intellectuals was criticized. The idea for this volume sprang from that situation. The editors invited scholars from various disciplines to present them with ways of imagining Europe that go beyond the rather limited view of EU institutions. How was, how is Europe imagined? Which memories are evoked, which visions explicated? Which counter-narratives to prominent discourses are there?

Abstract

The importance of oil for modern economic and political regimes increased during the economic boom of the post-war decades. Yet in 1973-1974, rising oil prices and reduced production raised the specter of an uncertain future. Rüdiger Graf examines the national and international strategies formulated to deal with this challenge to political sovereignty, exploring the first oil crisis in the context of the transformational processes of the 1970s.

Abstract

Published for the first time, Khrushchev`s secret conversations, consultations, and notes during the early phase of the Berlin Crisis that he initiated show us a politician filled with strong emotions who aimed at the domination of West Berlin and the ruin of NATO, thereby openly challenging the Western powers. However, he was not ultimately prepared to risk the nuclear war he had threatened.

Abstract

Focussing on the necessary renewal of the economic compromise of Cisleithania and Hungary in 1897, the beginning of the great "Crisis of the Dualism of the Habsburg Monarchy" will be examined. This work is based on the archives in Vienna and Budapest of the ministers of finances and the archives of the primeministers (ÖStA.., HHStA., MOL.) as well as the protocolls of both parliaments.
In October 1895 the new prime minister of Cisleithania, Badeni, started the negotiations with Hungary for the renewal of the economic compromise. This new compromise should have been finished in 1896, one year earlier than necessary to be a signal of strength and unity inside and outside the monarchy. In August 1896 this plan of an early compromise had to be dropped due to early elections of the Hungarian parliament. In May 1897 the renewal of the compromise again had to be postponed for one year. Cisleithania and Hungary couldn't find an agreement about the partition of the common expense between them (quota). Only the old compromise of 1887 could be prolonged for 1898. This so called Ausgleichsprovisorium (provisional compromise) was approved by the Hungarian parliament very quickly. In Cisleithania however it was facing the obstruction of the German parties of the elected chamber of parliament. The Germans wanted to force the Government to revoke the so called Badenian languages decrees for Bohemia and Moravia. These set the Czech language beside German even in the inner administration of these "crown lands" (provinces). The German fight against the government was concentrated on the Ausgleichsprovisorium due to the fact, that this was the only law, the government couldn't issue by an emergency decree; the Hungarian law of the constitutional compromise of 1867 didn't accept emergency decrees instead of laws on common issues. With this obstruction the German parties risked continuation of custom's union with Hungary and placed its future completely in Hungarian hands; they set their national above their economic interests. In November 1897 Badeni had to be dismissed. The German obstruction had successfully prevented the provisional compromise; the legal base of 1867 of the economic union was cast aside. Only by independent Cisleithanian and Hungarian laws could the unity be saved. Instead of a sign of strength and health, Austria-Hungary demonstrated its weakness and its inner strife.

Abstract

From February 5th till 7th, 2015, the "Conference on Scientific Cooperation between Greece and Germany" took place at the University of Hamburg. About 100 scientists from Greece and Germany invited by the President of the University, Dieter Lenzen, took part in the project, discussing the current crisis in Greece which also dramatically affects scholarship there and whose effects are now a fundamental threat to the functioning of the Greek university system. This volume documents the German version of the English-language welcome speech of the President of the University in which he emphasizes the urgency of joint action as well as the opening speech by the President of the European Court of Justice Vassilios Skouris in German. Skouris describes the specifics of the scientific relations between Greece and Germany in both historical and contemporary terms.

Abstract

Die Einigung Europas ist eine beispiellose Erfolgsgeschichte. Zu ihr gehörten stets auch Krisen, aus denen das europäische Projekt wieder gestärkt hervorgegangen ist.

Die Beiträge des Bandes rekapitulieren entscheidende Antriebskräfte und Etappen aus der Geschichte des europäischen Einigungsprojekts und beleuchten zentrale Aspekte der gegenwärtigen Lage in Europa. Der Band skizziert zudem Wege der Erneuerung und Weiterführung des europäischen Projekts.

Abstract

Der "Wutbürger", 2010 zum Wort des Jahres gekürt, hat die Krise demokratischer Repräsentation in Deutschland auf einen Begriff gebracht: Immer mehr Bürger äußern Misstrauen gegenüber der etablierten Politik. Bei einer Betrachtung dieser Krise und ihrer Ursachen sind die Vorstellungen der Bürger von einer guten und gerechten Organisation von Politik, Wirtschaft und Staat zentral. Die Studie beschäftigt sich mit den Protagonisten der neuen Bürgerproteste - jenen Akteuren also, die ihren Glauben an die Funktionsfähigkeit unserer Demokratie eingebüßt haben: Wer sind sie, was fordern sie und welche Demokratie schwebt ihnen vor?

Abstract

Global phenomenons like climate change, poverty, terrorism, or financial crises suggest thinking about changed forms of coexistence and perception. Many movements, initiatives, and groups are currently searching for alternative ways. They all share a yearning for a new art of living together (con-vivere). Convivialism means exploring possibilities for people to provide for each other and at the same time take care of nature, albeit without avoiding legitimate conflicts. The globally discussed manifesto by renowned authors clarifies: This can only succeed within a social order that invokes a joint humanity, principles of joint socialization, the principle of individuality, and acceptance of creative opposition.
