Panel II: Justification Narratives in International Negotiations

November 13, 2009, 14.00 – 16.00, Casino – Cas 823 Festsaal

This panel will examine justification narratives from the perspective of political science. Dr. Pleuger has few rivals in his practical experience of justification narratives in international negotiations, whether it be in the run-up to the Iraq war or in the controversies surrounding Germany’s efforts to secure a permanent seat on the Security Council. The panel will open with a talk by Prof. Dr. Klaus Dieter Wolf. A commentary on Dr. Pleuger’s talk will be offered by Prof. Nicole Deitelhoff, who will deal with the normative effects of multilateral negotiations.

Recent publications: Die UNO: Ge-schichte, Aufgaben, Perspektiven (2005); Die neuen Internationalen Beziehungen: For-schungsstand und Perspektiven in Deutschland (co-edited with Gunther Hellmann and Mi-chael Zürn) (2003).

Dr. Gunter Pleuger

Die normativen Wirkungen multilateralen Verhandelns

Gunther PleugerGunter Pleuger studied law in Cologne and Bonn and political science at the ENA in Paris. He obtained his doctorate in law in 1966. In 1969 he entered the diplomatic service and the following year was posted to Germany’s UN delegation in New York. Following a series of positions, among others as director of the human rights department in the German Foreign Ministry and from 1998 to 2002 as state secretary, in 2002 he became head of the German delegation to the UN. There he represented Germany, among other things in the Security Council, of which Germany was a non-permanent member from 2003 to 2004. In autumn 2000, he was the German chief negotiator at the EU conference in Nice. Pleuger became known to a wider public in the context of the controversies over the Iraq conflict because he represented the position of Germany, which held the Chair of the UN Security Council at this time, in numerous deliberations of the Security Council. More recently he played an active role, in cooperation with the other so-called G4 states, in promoting reforms of the United Nations while at the same time putting Germany’s case for a seat on the Security Council. On July 9, 2008, the senate of the European University Viadrina elected Gunter Pleuger as the president of the university. On October 1, 2008, he succeeded Gesine Schwan in this position.
