Die Anzahl von partizipierenden Bürgerinnen und Bürgern mit Migrationshintergrund bleibt trotz im Allgemeinen gestiegener Teilhabe gering. Auch Jugendliche mit Migrationshintergrund sind bei Formen des bürgerschaftlichen Engagements unterrepräsentiert. Die Grundlagen für politische Partizipation werden jedoch bereits im Kindesalter gelegt. Yvonne Blöcker geht in ihrer Studie „Demokratie- und Politikvorstellungen von Kindern mit Migrationshintergrund“ den (impliziten) Demokratie- und Politikvorstellungen von neun- und zehnjährigen Schülerinnen und Schülern mit Migrationshintergrund nach und gibt Ansatzpunkte für die politische Bildung.

Kurze Beschreibung:

Unterschiedliche Studien haben sich bereits mit dem politischen und demokratischen Wissen von Kindern im Grundschulalter befasst – weithin unerforscht ist jedoch die Gruppe von Kindern mit Migrationshintergrund. Welche Vorstellungen von Demokratie und Politik haben sie? Und wie nehmen sie politische und demokratische Prozesse in Deutschland wahr? Anhand dreier Fokusgruppen geht Yvonne Blöcker in „Demokratie- und Politikvorstellungen von Kindern mit Migrationshintergrund“ der Frage nach, welche Meinungen und Wahrnehmungen die Untersuchungsgruppe zu ausgewählten Demokratie- und Politikmerkmalen hat. Hierfür arbeitet sie die Assoziationen zu den Begriffen Demokratie und Politik heraus und betrachtet die Aspekte Ordnung des menschlichen Zusammenlebens, Meinungs- und Religionsfreiheit, Gleichheit und Gerechtigkeit, Partizipation, Gemeinsinn, Interessenkonflikte und Macht. Die Studie zeigt Gemeinsamkeiten, Unterschiede und Auffälligkeiten innerhalb der einzelnen Fokusgruppen sowie zwischen den drei Gruppen auf.

Über die Autorin:

Yvonne Blöcker (geb. Wypchol), Jahrgang 1986, hat Politikwissenschaft und Germanistik an der Georg-August-Universität Göttingen studiert. Bis 2018 arbeitete sie am Göttinger Institut für Demokratieforschung, zu ihrem Hauptarbeitsbereich gehörte die „Göttinger Kinderdemokratie“. Seit 2018 lebt und arbeitet sie in der Nähe von Hannover.

2020 is the 75th anniversary of the first atomic bombs dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki. In the now available edited collection Hiroshima-75: Nuclear Issues in Global Contexts by David Marples and Aya Fujiwara a group of international scholars seeks answers to the following questions: What lessons have we learned since the end of World War II? Can we avoid disasters like Chernobyl and Fukushima? And have we learned to live with man-made nuclear energy in the 21st century? The book offers new perspectives on the world’s first atomic bombs on the Japanese cities and the history, development, and portrayal of the utilization of atomic energy: in military and civilian industries, civil nuclear power, literature and film, and the contemporary world.

Featured Reviews:

"One of the great ironies of our time is the high level of nuclear weapons’ danger and the low level of public understanding. The public needs authentic information on the meaning of Hiroshima, and how the whole world continues to be held hostage to nuclear weapons. That valuable information is provided here."—Hon. Douglas Roche, O.C., Former Canadian Ambassador for Disarmament 

“No single discipline can address the problem of nuclear harm—we need them all.  If the (re)emerging interdisciplinary field of the Nuclear Humanities promises to bring new insights and understandings about the nuclear age from both inside and outside the academy, then Aya Fujiwara and David R. Marples’ edited volume Hiroshima-75 sure delivers!  The book will be useful to all those who share the normative impulse that the civilian and militaristic applications of nuclear technology continues to pose problems, and a necessary intervention for those who do not.”—N.A.J. Taylor, University of Melbourne

About the Editors:

  • Aya Fujiwara is Director of the Prince Takamado Japan Centre and Lecturer of History and Classics at the University of Alberta.
  • David R. Marples is Distinguished University Professor at the University of Alberta and has authored twenty books over his career, including three on the Chernobyl disaster.

Never Speak to Strangers...

May 19, 2020 3:15:00 PM

In Never Speak to Strangers and Other Writing from Russia and the Soviet Union, David Satter, one of the world’s leading commentators on Russian affairs, chronologizes his experiences with Russia over the past 40 years. Satter’s collection is a must-read for everyone who wants to understand todays Russia.

Featured Reviews:

”Many of our finest journalists have grappled with the moral legacy of Soviet communism, [… but] no one has stayed with the issue longer, dug deeper or thought harder about it than David Satter.”— Stephen Sestanovich, U.S. Ambassador-at-Large for the former Soviet Union, 1997–2001

„My take on this massive collection of essays is that David Satter got things right. Taken together, his essays give us a much-needed framework for understanding Russia under Putin: where it came from, what it is like now, and—the most difficult question of all—where it is headed.“ — Paul R. Gregory, research fellow at the Hoover Institution

Short summary

David Satter arrived in the Soviet Union in June, 1976 as the correspondent of the Financial Times of London and entered a country that was a giant theater of the absurd. After 1982, he was banned from the Soviet Union but allowed back in 1990, and finally expelled in 2013 on the grounds that the secret police regarded his presence as “undesirable.”

From 1976 to the present, he saw four different Russias, which differed from each other radically while remaining essentially the same. From 1976 to 1982, the Soviet Union was at the height of its world power and its people were in thrall to an absurd ideology. With the advent of Gorbachev’s perestroika, the Soviet population was liberated from the ideology and the state hurtled to its inevitable collapse. When independent Russia emerged from the wreckage, the failure to replace the missing ideology with genuine moral values led to Russia’s complete criminalization.

Diverse views on a controversial topic

What is political correctness? What is conformism? And could one say that pre-emptive obedience is a part of the increasingly prevalent climate of political correctness encountered today? The authors of the anthology PC on Earth: The Beginnings of the Totalitarian Mindset address these questions in various ways and present diverse views on a controversial topic. The book is a collection of satire, philosophical analysis, travel reports, political analysis, and personal experiences. This collection offers readers independent and free-thinking opinions they will get nowhere else.

A collection of free-thinking opinions

Edited by Jasmin Dall'Agnola and Jabbar Moradi, this anthology contains writings by Josette Baer, Jozef Banáš, Jasmin Dall’Agnola, Peter Thomas Hill, Lukas Joos, Pavle Krsmanović, Adis Merdzanovic, Jabbar Moradi, David O’Kane, Balász Varádi and Marc Winter.

May 7, 2020 2:44:56 PM

There is reason to celebrate

The Journal of Soviet and Post-Soviet Politics and Society (JSPPS) turns five and we are thankful to all who have accompanied us on this journey. Since April 2015, ten issues have been published, dealing with various topics such as protest movements, gender, political violence, identity, or multilingualism in post-Socialist spaces.

The journal was launched as an accompanying publication to the book series Soviet and Post-Soviet Politics and Society. Its editor-in-chief is Dr Julie Fedor, University of Melbourne. Like the book series, founded and edited by Dr Andreas Umland, the journal offers an interdisciplinary forum for new and original research on the Soviet and post-Soviet world.

New issue in May

The forthcoming issue (available in May 2020) is co-edited by Rory Finnin, Ivan Kozachenko, Andreas Umland and Yuliya Yurchuk. It contains two special sections: “Multilingualism in Ukraine” and “Issues in the History and Memory of the OUN III”.
