Tuberculosis as Disease and Politics in Germany, 1871-1961

Kolchinsky, Anna January 2013 (has links)
Thesis advisor: Devin Pendas / Thesis advisor: James Cronin / Political structures, ideology, and science interact to shape public health policy in a way that is complex and still poorly understood. The German experience in the 20th century creates a unique historical opportunity for studying this interplay. This study examines the development and variation of tuberculosis control measures under the Kaiser Reich, during the Weimar Republic, in the era of Nazism, and in the post-1945 occupation zones and subsequent German states. This dissertation examines major milestones in scientific understanding, medical practice, public health policy, legislation, and regulation related to tuberculosis control under successive German states and governments will help to clarify their interaction. In the course of this turbulent German century, profound changes occurred in the scientific understanding of tuberculosis. Tuberculosis had reached epidemic proportions in Germany in the wake of the industrial revolution, spurring considerable research into its origins, treatment, and the conditions of its spread. Robert Koch's 1882 discovery of the tuberculosis bacillus launched a period of progress in diagnosis and treatment that coincided with increased political interest in public health more generally. Only with the discovery of streptomycin in 1945 did medical science begin to develop the first effective drug therapies and struggled with questions of how to integrate these into existing treatment and prevention paradigms. Here, a comparison between the East and West German experience proves particularly helpful in exploring the importance of ideology, politics, medical knowledge, as well as institutional and professional interests. Ultimately, through the case study of tuberculosis treatment and control, this dissertation examines how the interaction between various German states' ideologies, their medical traditions, and their scientific knowledge shaped Germany's public health policies and practices. / Thesis (PhD) — Boston College, 2013. / Submitted to: Boston College.

"The last Bridge" - The United German Olympic Teams in the East And West German Press 1956-1964

Pust-Petters, Anna Celine January 2015 (has links)
The purpose of the thesis is to explore how the negotiations about the United German Olympic Teams (1956-1964) were represented in the West and East German press, specifically in Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung (FRG) and Neues Deutschland (GDR). The United German Olympic Teams were the last bridge connecting the two Germanys, continuing to exist even after the construction of the Berlin wall. The thesis is based on the assumption that sport played an important role in the construction of post- war German identities. Moreover, it will be argued that the two German states relied heavily on ideological demarcation from the respective "other" for legitimization. Thus, the thesis will argue that the discourses about the constitution of the team reflect on questions of identity, unity, and division. In order achieve this, Fairclough's method of Critical Discourse Analysis will be used to examine ideological and symbolic content in the discourses on the negotiations between the two National Olympic Committees.

Cidlina, Václav January 2012 (has links)
The thesis is mainly focused on the creation of laws, i.e. how they are produced, who makes them, who has a real influence on the law-making and how the legislative process looks like with its specific rules. This search is conducted not merely in the Czech Republic but also in the neighborly Federal Republic of Germany.

(Re)construire dans la division. Aspects de la vie juive à Berlin entre Est et Ouest (1945-1990) / (Re)construction in Division – The Jews in Berlin between East and West (1945-1990)

Duchaine-Guillon, Laurence 30 November 2009 (has links)
Pour les Juifs rescapés de la Shoah, établir une vie nouvelle sur le territoire allemand après 1945 était quasiment impensable. En particulier à Berlin, l’ancienne capitale du IIIe Reich, devenue le point de cristallisation des relations Est-Ouest, l’entreprise paraissait improbable, à tel point que la conception de la communauté de « liquidation » a dominé jusque dans les années 1950. Et pourtant, la [re]construction s’est opérée malgré tout, sous les auspices de la division allemande, qui n’a pas épargné la Communauté Juive de Berlin. L’analyse comparative des Juifs à Berlin-Est et à Berlin-Ouest, sur les plans démographique, religieux, politique et culturel, révèle certes de fortes disparités, liées plus ou moins directement aux caractéristiques des régimes de la RFA et de la RDA ; mais au-delà de ces clivages indéniables, il est possible de mettre en lumière un certain nombre de valeurs et de préoccupations communes aux Juifs dans les deux Berlin, ainsi que des phénomènes de passage jusqu’alors peu étudiés. / For the Jews who had survived the Shoah, to establish of a new life on the German territory after 1945 was almost unthinkable. Particularly in Berlin, the former capital of the third Reich, which became the nodal point of the East-West relations, the attempt seemed most unlikely. As a result, the conception of a community of “liquidation” dominated until the 1950’s. Yet, [re]construction took place, in spite of everything, in the context of the partition of Germany, which didn’t spare the Jewish Community of Berlin. The comparative analysis of the Jews in East- and West-Berlin at the demographic, religious, political and cultural levels does reveal strong disparities, which are more or less linked with the features of the East-German and West-German systems; but beyond these undeniable divides, it is possible to bring to light common values and concerns, as well as forms of crossing which have attracted little scholarly attention so far.

We'll Get What We'll Get : Perspectives on Trust Building Between Professional and Volunteer Crisis Response Assets.

Ekermo Karlsson, Tomas January 2018 (has links)
The Swedish crisis management system relies strongly on collaboration. Collaboration is even declared within official documents as an obligation when preparing for and acting upon a crisis event. Collaborating can bring powerful positive effects on crisis response efforts such as an increased workforce, sharing of resources and dissemination of risks. But collaboration is hard and depends on the existence of a series of components to be effective. One such component is the presence of trust between collaborative partners. Due to what appears to be a growing intensity in volunteer engagements within the Swedish crisis response system, issues of professional-volunteer collaboration become increasingly interesting. Volunteer adds a variety of benefits to a crisis operation, but also brings certain difficulties into the collaboration. This paper has used semi-structured interviews in order to explored determinants of trust building between professionals and volunteers organized in the FRG format. By using a qualitative content analysis approach and incorporating identified themes into a novel tentative theoretical model, it is shown that operative trust between professionals and volunteers are highly dependent on simulation exercises as well as personal and cultural familiarity.

How Same-Sex Spouses of Female Enlisted Soldiers Perceive Support in Military Communities Post-DADT/DOMA Repeals

Gutman, Cristina F. 01 January 2017 (has links)
The end of the Vietnam War heralded the beginning of the all-volunteer Army. In the interest of soldier retention, research focused on the military spouse, their challenges and needs. Four decades of research indicate that soldier deployments, separation from loved ones, and limited career options were among factors negatively impacting psychological and physiological well-being of this population. Support offered through military formal and informal support networks, however, provides some relief. The repeals of Don't Ask, Don't Tell and Defense of Marriage Act expanded the military family to include same-sex spouses yet a review of the literature revealed no research on this relatively new phenomenon. This hermeneutic phenomenological study explored how same-sex spouses of enlisted female soldiers perceive support in their military communities. Presented are findings of semi structured interviews conducted with 12 spouses of active duty enlisted female soldiers recruited using purposive and snowball sampling. Spouses shared their experiences by answering 8 open-ended questions. Research credibility and validity included verbatim transcription and member checking for accuracy, reflexive journaling, audit trail maintenance, and data saturation; manual coding and NVivo11 identified emergent themes and subthemes. Data revealed spouses faced additional stressors due to their sexual minority status, and perceived rejection from support resources created feelings of alienation and isolation. This research represents the first foundational study of this minority group in this setting. Social implications include a deeper understanding of these spouses by unit commanders, chaplaincies, informal support groups, health care providers, and other military agencies in order that these may improve existing, or create additional, support networks and services.

Role kancléře v zahraniční politice Spolkové republiky Německo: Angela Merkelová / Role of the chancellor in the foreign policy of the Federal Republic of Germany: Angela Merkel

Farská, Kateřina January 2015 (has links)
This master thesis is concerned with the role of the chancellor in the foreign policy with respect to the institutional possibilities that the German political system provides him, and also with respect to the personality of the chancellor - it strives to answer the question, if it is possible to identify the personality impact in the chancellor foreign policy positions. As the case example the current chancellor Angela Merkel has been chosen, who serves for a period long enough to carry out the research and who is at the same time well-respected personality abroad. The thesis comes to the conclusion that the chancellor has the rights to intervene in the foreign policy and uses those rights. By means of the discourse and content analysis of chancellor's speeches it has been possible to identify foreign policy preferences of the chancellor which can be associated with her personal life experience.

Proměny zahraniční politiky SRN ve vztahu k palestinské otázce 1967 - 1974 / Developments of the Foreign Policy of FRG in Relation to the Palestinian Question 1967-1974

Zelinková, Anežka January 2017 (has links)
This diploma thesis titled "Developments of the Foreign Policy of FRG in Relation to the Palestinian Question 1967-1974" aims to bring closer look at the dynamics of development of the foreign policy of the Federal Republic of Germany in the time when the Palestinian question began to resonate with international community. This empirical study, inspired in its' structure by the Two-Level Game concept by Robert D. Putnam, examines the effects that the Bonn Republic had to deal with in the context of today's unresolved and often polarizing issues and identify factors that were decisive for shaping of the policy. The thesis operates with hypothesis that the pro-Palestinian speech of the representative of West Germany at the United Nations in 1974 was the natural outcome of the transformation that foreign policy has undergone in the years leading to it. After the historical part, which describes the relationship between Germany and the South Levant region until 1945, the second and third chapters deal with the external and internal influences that influenced the FRG in the chosen period. Among the strongest international influences were the US, Israel, Arab states and multilateral actors such as the UN and the European Community. On the national level, in addition to political parties, public opinion,...
