The Brexit and the consequences for Europe. With S. E. Sir Sebastian Wood, Ambassador of Great Britain in Germany

Barely two years after the referendum on Britain’s exit from the EU, the Brexit negotiations are in full swing. The media mostly talk about problems, sometimes more or less large breakthroughs of the complex process. Only one thing is clear: on 29.03.2019  the British EU membership ends. If the United Kingdom and the EU do not agree by then, apart from the economic consequences, the status of EU citizens in Britain and British people in the EU is an...

“Europe of Regions” – a model for the future?

In times of crisis, the European Union is under pressure to evolve. In a globalized world, the national is too small to assert itself, while the regional is experiencing political empowerment. This level of politics is closer to the citizen, less complicated decisions can be better understood. The concept of a “Europe of the Regions”, which would give regions greater autonomy and more rights within the European Union, has been part of discussions on the future of the...

Grunewald in the Orient – The German-Jewish Jerusalem. With Thomas Sparr

Rechavia was the German-Jewish Jerusalem, capital of the Jeckes. They had come to the country in very different ways, fled, moved, visited, temporarily interned by the British Mandate, escaped from Zionist self-assertion or the Nazi persecution. Many came from Berlin or spent a significant period of their lives there. The garden city Rechavia took up something of the inner layout of the big city. “Grunewald in the Orient” called residents and visitors Rechavia after the noble bourgeois West, who...

„Inside Islam“ – The role of mosques in Germany. With Constantin Schreiber

„Inside Islam“ – The role of mosques in Germany. With Constantin Schreiber

With his book “Inside Islam: What is preached in Germany’s mosques” published in March 2017, moderator Constantin Schreiber sparked a controversy. He visited mosques in Germany for half a year to document and translate the Friday sermons. The result: Many mosques preach very conservative and even problematic content, often the divisiveness is in the foreground and the connection to the reality of life in Muslims living in Germany is lacking. Critics of the report accuse Schreiber to paint...

Europe’s economy and the responsibility for the young European generation. With René Obermann

In the United States, an entrepreneur is president, who campaigns for protectionism and isolation. The Brexit leads the British and the whole of Europe into an economically absurd and at the same time dangerous policy, which also heads towards isolation. In both cases, economic action was forcibly politicized. “That is why, as pro-European entrepreneurs, we should recognize this politicization, abandon our – at least public – restraint and fight for more Europe.” René Obermann recently said in an article...

The new Bundestag: More discussion – more democracy? With Petra Pau

With the parliamentary elections on 24th September 2017, the number of seats in the German Bundestag has risen from 630 delegates from four factions to 709 representatives from six groups. However, as the largest Bundestag in the history of the Federal Republic, the Legislature faces not only a space problem in the plenary hall, but also the question of how the Members will deal with each other. First conflicts in the Bundestag were already apparent: In...
