Sandinista Nicaragua and the Solidarity Movements in the Federal Republic of Germany and German Democratic Republic. Transnational Transfers, Ideas and Practices

Stefanie Senger

Associated PhD project

Soon after the Sandinista Revolution of 1979, solidarity movements in the FRG and GDR began to enthusiastically develop ‘their’ Nicaragua. By implementing aid projects in this central American country, they pursued political aims they could not have fulfilled at home.

The Creating of Islamic Fundamentalists. The Muslim world in federal German politics and perception in the 1970s and 1980s

Alex Konrad

Associated PhD project

The PhD thesis concerns the perception of the Muslim world prevalent in West Germany from the 1970s to the 1990s. Beginning with an analysis of the oriental narratives about the Muslim world in the 1970s, the central part deals with the perception of the Islamic Revolution in Iran and its aftermath.
