Jahrbuch der Hambach-Gesellschaft
This yearbook is committed to the legacy of the Hambach Festival of May 1832. The granting of human and freedom rights, a just social order, European unification, and democratic peacekeeping are not the result of a completed historical process but must be defended again and again.
The yearbook, which has been published since 1988, is committed to these goals: academic essays and controversy-stimulating (research) articles make the democratic traditions of German history fruitful for today and, at the same time, help to spread knowledge/insights that is/are indispensable for a democratic community.
In addition, the Forum section publishes essays, lectures, and speeches that provoke discussion or even objection and contribute to political education along the lines of the Hambach tradition.
