This seminar offers the opportunity to analyse and evaluate German foreign policy on the basis of recent case studies. Based on the conceptual foundations of role theory as an analytical tool from Comparative Foreign Policy Analysis, and specifically the ideal-type civilian power role concept, the seminar will explore the overall development of German foreign and security policy since 1990 and several case studies, notably the wars in Bosnia and Kosovo (1992-1999), the Iraq war (2002/2003), the Libya intervention (2011) and the Ukraine crisis (2014). Participants are expected to take up one of the cases and prepare a 20-min presentation and develop this into a 15-page term paper.
