Download E-books Ein kritischer Literaturbericht zum Buch von Egon Bahr "Der deutsche Weg. Selbstverständlich und normal" (German Edition) PDF

By Ferid Giebler

Rezension / Literaturbericht aus dem Jahr 2008 im Fachbereich Politik - Politische Systeme - Politisches method Deutschlands, be aware: 1,3, Helmut-Schmidt-Universität - Universität der Bundeswehr Hamburg, Sprache: Deutsch, summary: Der Begriff „deutscher Weg“ ist historisch stark negativ konnotiert. Anstatt die außen- und sicherheitspolitische Richtung der Bundesrepublik Deutschland zu beschreiben, weckt er zuerst Erinnerungen an die „deutschen Sonderwege“. Am ersten sollte „die Welt genesen“. Nach dem zweiten, der auf die Beherrschung Europas abzielte, lag ganz Europa in Schutt und Asche. Ein dritter „Fehltritt“ Deutschlands sollte sich nicht ereignen, weshalb die außen- und sicherheitspolitische Handlungsfähigkeit der Bundesrepublik bis zur Wiedervereinigung 1989/90 maßgeblich durch die Interessen der Besatzungsmächte, insbesondere der united states, begrenzt wurde. Aus dem kaiserlichen Obrigkeitsstaat und der späteren fehlgeleiteten nationalsozialistischen Diktatur wuchs eine stabile westliche Demokratie, die ihre Außen- und Sicherheitspolitik nach Wegfall des Ost-West-Konfliktes und der deutschen Wiedervereinigung nun wieder selbst bestimmt.

Bezüglich der Auseinandersetzungen mit den united states um eine Beteiligung Deutschlands am Irakkrieg 2003 verkündete der damalige Bundeskanzler Gerhard Schröder den „deutschen Weg“, der die uneingeschränkte Solidarität mit den united states beinhaltete, aber „gefährliche Abenteuer“ wie den Präventivkrieg gegen den Irak deutlich ausschließe.

Aufgrund der fehlenden Schärfe des Terminus soll mit Bahr und Gareis die Bedeutung des heutigen „deutschen Weges“ erschlossen werden, wobei die wichtigsten historischen und aktuellen spezifisch deutschen Elemente außen- und sicherheitspolitischen Handelns berücksichtigt werden. Aufgrund der Komplexität stehen daher die Merkmale und Interessen deutscher Außenpolitik im Mittelpunkt sowie die Frage nach einem notwendigen internationalen Rahmen, in dem sich Deutschland hier bewegen sollte.

Bahrs Beitrag ist keine wissenschaftliche Arbeit. Deshalb wird diese zur öffentlichen Debatte anregende Reflexion, aus Sicht des früheren Staatssekretärs und Bundesministers für besondere Aufgaben im Bundeskanzleramt, zuerst betrachtet. Anschließend wird mit der wissenschaftlichen examine Gareis‘ fortgefahren, der auch jüngere Entwicklungen aufgreift und mehrmals Stellung zu Bahr nimmt. Deswegen kann die wissenschaftliche Fundierung von Bahrs Aussagen im Nachhinein besser überprüft werden. Abschließend wird zur Notwendigkeit eines deutschen Gegenstücks zur Europäischen Sicherheitsstrategie (ESS) oder der amerikanischen nationwide safeguard technique (NSS) und der Sinnhaftigkeit des Begriffes „deutscher Weg“ kritisch Stellung genommen.
