Abstract

The twentieth century has been described (e.g., Piskorski 2015 ) as a century
of displacement. While globally the comparative scale of involuntary population
movement may not have diff ered signifi cantly from earlier centuries, its
perception has changed radically, leading in the early twenty- fi rst century to
the dramatic resurgence of xenophobic populism across Europe and beyond
(see Kaya 2017 ; De Cesari and Kaya 2019). Throughout the ‘refugee crisis’ of
the 2010s, the German government’s moderate policy towards new migrants
was widely criticised. The ideological foundation for that policy was, arguably,
the country’s experience of integrating millions of ethnic German expellees
and refugees from Central and Eastern Europe in the aftermath of the Second
World War.

Abstract

This is a new exploration of how the events of the twentieth century still cast a shadow over relations between Germany, Poland and the Czech Republic. Using social constructivism theory, it provides a comparative assessment of Germany's post-reunification relations with the Czech Republic and Poland within the framework of the contemporary alliance structure. Identifying the key actors and factors, Cordell and Wolff examine the long-standing continuity in the norms and values that underpin German foreign policy and explore the issues of borders, territory, identities, minorities and population transfers. Paying particular attention to the process of European integration and the role of the new Germany within Europe, the authors identify how new possibilities for co-operation might finally overcome legacies of the past. This pioneering study will be of particular interest to students of European politics and international studies.
