With its publications, the IF DDR aims to contribute to current debates on social struggles and political alternatives by drawing on the experiences of socialism in the German Democratic Republic (DDR). To do so, we analyse and present historical and contemporary witness material in various formats.
The series “Studies on the DDR” provides a basis for an international exchange about the DDR by tracing out the history and structures of its socialist society. We receive advisory support from our partner Tricontinental: Institute for Social Research for this series.
The research platform “Friendship!” hosts concise contributions that explore the international solidarity and anti-imperialist strategies of the DDR and other socialist states during the 20th century.
