Subproject B01 — Public Peace?
Non-Violence and Federal Order in the Early Modern Age2. Förderphase
second funding stage (2018-2021)
The subproject researches the correlation of political order and peacekeeping in the 16th and 17th centuries. The progress in modernisation in early modern times, which linked the emergence of the unitary state with the ensuring of internal and external security, will be critically examined by analysing how federal political systems (Holy Roman Empire, Swiss Confederation, the Netherlands) established security and how they ensured security for the future. Likewise it will be analysed how new challenges - like the rising problems between the different confessions or peasant uprisings - became the subject of peacekeeping and thereby a subject of security policy.
