Abstract: Previous selective-exposure research has shown that news choice is influenced by both automatic affective reactions (i.e., implicit attitudes) and overtly-expressed evaluations based on conscious reasoning (i.e., explicit attitudes). The present study investigated whether implicit and explicit attitudes predict news choice in Muslims with migration backgrounds living in Germany. We used both attitude constructs to predict a selection bias for news about the same event stemming from the host country (Germany) vs. from other countries. Using a survey (N = 1,107), we found that favorable implicit and explicit attitudes toward Germany increased a participant’s tendency to select German news. Each attitudinal construct predicted a unique variance in news choice. Using a subsample of Turkish citizens living in Germany who participated in the Turkish constitutional referendum 2017 (N = 241), we found that the attitude-based selection bias predicted their voting decision. We discuss implications for selective-exposure research and processes of integration.

Abstract: Coming to terms with the Nazi past was a key challenge to both German states. In retrospect, the founding of the German Democratic Republic and the Federal Republic of Germany can be seen as two different attempts to draw certain lessons from National Socialism, each with different consequences for their respective cultures of remembrance and thus for public education after Auschwitz. Against the backdrop of a dual national history of memory, the presentation will examines how the divergent value systems of both German nations came together in forging a uniform national conception of “education after Auschwitz” and the role played by the division of Germany in current debates about the teaching of the Nazi past.

Abstract: Today people of Turkish origin comprise Germany's largest ethnic minority, with an estimated number of around 2.5 million Turks living in Germany. With immigration naturally arises the issue of integration, of how the immigrants will relate to and live in the host society. Integration encompasses economic, political, social and cultural factors which are fundamental in building bridges between the two societies. In recent years the failure of this community of Turkish immigrants to integrate into German society has come to light. The pressing issue of this community’s struggle illustrates the wider problem of immigrant integration facing Germany. This paper will address the challenges of integrating Germany’s minority immigrant populations. Focusing specifically on Germany’s Turkish immigrant population provides a valuable case study of the challenges facing Germany in regards to understanding the relationship between these spheres German society. Three possible hypotheses on the underlying causes of Germany’s difficulty in integrating its minority immigrant populations will be examined: the role of German state policies, the societal perception of immigrants among the German population, and the role of the minority immigrant communities. The implications of this paper extend beyond Germany’s relationship with its Turkish population to the issue of immigration within Germany and more broadly within the European Union.

Abstract: Germany has conventionally been viewed as a ‘cooperative’ or interlocked federal system characterised by collaboration between tiers of government in delivering agreed statewide goals. The unit of analysis is systemic: there is a single, integrated system of multi-level government. More recently a growing number of works have taken the Land as a unit of analysis and explored political behaviour, party competition, institutional forms, and public policy processes and outcomes on a Land-by-Land basis. Few analyses have so far combined systemic and Land-specific perspectives on Germany’s multi-level statehood. The result is an ‘either-or’ (either single-unit, system-wide or 16-unit, Land-specific) understanding of German federalism rather than a ‘both-and’ understanding that explores system-wide and Land-level politics in an integrated analysis. This paper offers both an explanation for the persistence of ‘either-or’ scholarship, and arguments about why we need to overcome it in order to build a more subtle understanding of the relationship of federalism and democracy in Germany.
