Structures of Power, Dominance and Freedom

The subject area “Structures of Power, Dominance and Freedom” contains textbook extracts about colonialism and imperialism as well as depictions which deal with overcoming imbalances of power and the post-colonial era. This subject area also comprises descriptions of different social and political movements from the past or the present, which oppose unequal distributions of power and oppression in favour of freedom and independence.

Heterogeneity of Societies

The subject area “Heterogeneity of Societies” contains textbook extracts focusing on the societal status quo, which is often characterised by diversity in both past and present-day societies. The term “diversity” can be applied to a variety of different categories. An example is the phenomenon of migration. It can, on the one hand, be part of the national identity of a country or, on the other hand, be used as focal point to start debates about discrimination and dissociation.

Transnational and International Relations and Organisations

The subject area “Transnational and International Relations and Organisations” contains textbook extracts which deal with diplomatic and other institutionalised bi- and multilateral relations between different countries and regions. Organised associations between states and their activities in the areas of international politics, economics, and law (i.e. human rights, development cooperation, and humanitarian aid) are reflected alongside the political positions of the countries for which the textbooks were written.
