The Baltic Sea Region since 1989 (Katja Rosenbaum, M.A.)
In this course we shall deal with the political, economical, social and cultural developments in the Baltic Sea Region that occurred after the fall of the „iron curtain”. This especially applies to the collapse of the Eastern bloc and the Soviet Union with the independency of the Baltic States as well as to the political, economical and military re-orientation of the former Eastern bloc-States (accession to NATO, EU etc.) and the corresponding effects on the single countries. Special attention shall be given to the role of the Nordic countries and the reunified Germany in the whole process.
