Course Description: Every state and government formulates and practices its own foreign policy on different historical, normative, and institutional bases. In view of the different starting points, it is not surprising that the goals and interests of states and governments and their foreign policy differ; they formulate problems differently, define options for action and political strategies differently, talk and act differently. Against the background of this problem, this seminar deals with the question of how Germany's foreign policy presents itself in a comparative perspective. Comparative case studies examine whether, to what extent, and why Germany's foreign policy after unification may be different in comparison to other states in different foreign policy fields in the face of more or less equal challenges. The following questions serve as a common guideline for all case studies: 1) What are the characteristics of German foreign policy in comparison? 2) Is the legitimacy of German foreign policy questionable? 3) Which influencing factors do experts state for the findings under 1) and 2)? Comparative foreign policy research serves to describe, evaluate, and understand differences and similarities.
