Download e-book for kindle: Innerdeutsche Städtepartnerschaften - ein bedeutender by Steffen Radtke

By Steffen Radtke

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2010 im Fachbereich Politik - Politische Systeme - Historisches, be aware: 1,7, Universität Rostock, Sprache: Deutsch, summary: Waren die innerdeutschen Städtepartnerschaften ein bedeutender Schritt auf dem Weg zur Deutschen Einheit oder nicht?
Um dieser Frage nachgehen zu können, wird zunächst der historische Kontext und der allgemeine politische Rahmen jener Zeit abgesteckt, um aufzeigen zu können, dass die innerdeutschen Städtepartnerschaften nur vor dem Hintergrund weltpolitischer Entspannung eine Existenzchance erhielten. Aus diesem Grund ist der zweite Punkt in die zwei Unterpunkte unterteilt, welche durch die politische Wende unter Gorbatschow ihre Grenzlinie in der Darstellung bekommen. Neben dem allgemeinen Kontext werden in diesem Zusammenhang bereits einige reason und Interessen beider Staaten aufgezeigt. Um weitere Implikationen auf diese tätigen zu können, muss, bevor dies getan wird, im folgenden Punkt zunächst die konkrete Darstellung der Vereinbarungen zwischen den Städten zum Partnerschaftsabschluss erfolgen. Exemplarisch wird dies an der ersten innerdeutschen Partnerschaft zwischen Saarlouis und Eisenhüttenstadt sowie in konziserer shape zwischen Erlangen und Jena aufgezeigt. Es wird explizit eruiert werden, dass die Verträge die Frage nach der Kompetenzgrenze kommunalen Handelns aufwerfen. Um die damit korrelierten Hintergründe zu klären, erfolgt im fünften Punkt eine juristische Betrachtung der Abkommen. Anschließend werden die politischen Obstruktionen thematisiert, welche aufgrund der starren Haltung der DDR auftraten. Ausgehend davon wird eine Kritik an den Städtepartnerschaften vorgenommen, welche durch den folgenden Unterpunkt, in dem ein Vergleich von Leistung und Wirkung heutiger Städtepartnerschaften zu den innerdeutschen gezogen wird, weiter bekräftigt wird. Es soll allerdings nicht nur Kritik geübt werden, denn in Bezug auf die Leitfrage nach der Bedeutung der Städtepartnerschaften für die Deutsche Einheit können diese auch gelobt werden. Dies wird im siebten Punkt geschehen, in welchem zuerst die Bedeutung der kommunalen Kontakte für die Zeit kurz nach dem Mauerfall analysiert wird, bevor im darauf folgenden Unterpunkt die Bedeutung jener Partnerschaften für die Zeit nach der Wiedervereinigung unter die Lupe genommen wird. Die implizite Prämisse ist dabei eine von Ambiguität geprägte Sichtweise auf die Deutsche Einheit, welche zum einen als formelle Einheit seit dem 3.10.1990 gesehen wird, darüber hinaus jedoch auch die im Denken der Bürger liegende innere Einheit umfasst.

Read e-book online Religion, Science, and Democracy: A Disputational Friendship PDF

By Lisa L. Stenmark

Despite the expanding approval for “religion and technology” as an educational discourse, the intersection of technological know-how and faith is still a entrance line in an ongoing “culture war.” the explanations for this lie in an method of discourse that heavily resembles the version of discourse promoted via John Rawls, within which plural discourse —such as among faith and technology— is predicated on a beginning of shared ideals and verified evidence. This ends up in a “doctrines and discoveries” method of the connection of faith and technology, which makes a speciality of their respective fact claims in an try to locate components of contract. This framework inherently privileges medical views, which truly raises clash among faith and technological know-how, and undermines public discourse by means of putting absolutes into it. To the level that the technology and faith discourse adopts this strategy, it inadvertently raises the clash among faith and technological know-how and boundaries our skill to handle issues of public concern.

This booklet indicates another version for discourse, a disputational friendship, according to the paintings of Hannah Arendt. This procedure acknowledges the function that specialists —and therefore faith and technological know-how— play in public lifestyles, yet undermines any try and privilege a selected authority, since it promotes the placement of the storyteller, who by no means settles on a unmarried tale yet constantly seeks to include many specific tales into her account. A disputational friendship promotes storytelling no longer through looking contract, yet through exploring parts of war of words so as to create the gap for extra conversations and to generate extra tales and extra interpretations. winning discourse among faith and technological know-how isn't measured by means of its skill to figure out “truth” or “fact,” yet by way of its skill to repeatedly extend the discourse and advertise public lifestyles and public judgment.
