Violent Conflict and Peace

The subject area “Violent conflict and Peace” contains textbook excerpts concerning wars of global significance as well as transnational and regional conflicts. The depictions of these events highlight the capacity of WorldViews to bring together the heterogeneous narratives of different countries, allowing them to participate in the presentation of a common history. Some textbook narratives dissociate themselves, retrospectively, from a partisan perspective in respect to violent conflicts of the past. In other cases partisan affiliations have become so ingrained that this positioning remains unquestioned after the end of armed conflicts. By way of contrast, this subject also encompasses depictions of peace processes and political negotiations that portray past and current endeavours for peaceful coexistence.

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.
