You are welcome to this website

My website offers analyses on topics of political culture research. I would like the reader to participate in my expertise in Political science (habilitation), social and cultural sciences (doctorate in Slavic and Islamic studies) as well as from my 30 years of professional experience in political consulting. My regional focus is on Europe, including the European Union, Central and Eastern Europe, the Balkans and the states in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA). On this basis, I also tap into topics from international politics.

This website offers three knowledge platforms: In  TOPICS IN FOCUS I examine  current topics from different perspectives. Here, scientific theories and methods are discussed that can complement or contradict each other. In this way, I would like to do justice to the complexity of socio-political developments and provide my readers with more media competence to be able to form their own opinions independently of experts. 

At the same time, I publish detailed analyzes in the ONLINE JOURNAL CULTURE POLITICS INTERNATIONAL which I founded in 2017. It also offers translations into English, and on-topic into Russian, Arabic and Spanish. In the PUBLICATIONS section I give an insight into my publication activities over the past thirty years outside of this website. Finally, the DOCUMENTATION section, a navigation aid for this website, is new.

One of the fundamentals of my academic work is the belief that open societies with a fair competition of ideas and theoretical approaches are capable of finding concepts and strategies to solve most social and political conflicts. A precondition for this, however, is an ethical commitment to the non-use of violence, to peace, to humanism and to international understanding. With this website, I would like to make my contribution to this.
