This year we are commemorating the treaty on the unification of Germany, which set the agenda for a common future of the country 25 years ago. Against this background we are searching for evidence together with our authors of different disciplines – back into the future. In this context, the issue is not only to consider how our country and our society have changed since 1990, whether “what belongs together has grown together”, where landscapes bloom and what has perhaps fallen by the wayside. Even 25 years later, there are considerable differences between the western and the eastern part of the present republic.
