A Touch of Green Amid the Grey? The German Greens and Europe – Between Rejection and Reformulation
The presentation deals with the formation of the West German greens in a European context, as well as their perspectives and perceptions of Europe. Firstly we will shed light on the importance of international, transnational and European influences in the founding process of the German greens. Secondly the different positions of them towards Europe will be outlined. What were their perspectives on the institutional Europe in Brussels? And how did their own utopias for a ‘different Europe’ look like?
