The Hohenzollern Debate: The German Royal Family and the Nazis

In Germany, a fierce debate has recently developed on the links between the old royal family Hohenzollern and the Nazis. This issue was raised after the Hohenzollern had claimed restitution from the state for the Soviet expropriations of their property after 1945. In order to get approval for its claim, the Hohenzollern family has to prove that their ancestors did not substantially support the Nazis in their rise to power. In the ensuing legal proceedings and public discussion over this issue historians have become sought-after experts and important witnesses. Stephan Malinowski is one of them.

Post-Growth Planning: Cities Beyond the Market Economy

Cities cover just 2% of the planet’s surface but consume 75% of all the materials and energy worldwide. In 2050, planetary urbanization will demand ten times more materials, water, and energy than today. This is seriously undermining any possibility to halt climate breakdown. In this event, we will analyse how a degrowth agenda for cities might be the answer to this urgent issue.

Nieuwkomers in Nederland in historisch perspectief
De vluchtelingenrepubliek

Van Willem van Oranje tot Anne Frank en van Frans Hals tot Sifan Hassan: Nederland is in veel opzichten gevormd door vluchtelingen. Maar ook de angst voor asielzoekers als een bedreiging voor ‘onze’ veiligheid, welvaart en cultuur heeft diepe wortels. Is Nederland historisch gezien een land van vluchtelingen? En waarom gaat geen vluchtelingencrisis aan ons voorbij zonder een fikse identiteitscrisis?
