Abstract Es gibt einen grundlegenden Antagonismus zwischen den exklusiven Normen des europäischen Nationalstaats und den viel weitergehenden Normen der universellen Menschenrechte, ein Antagonismus, der so alt ist wie die europäischen Gesellschaften der Moderne selbst. Beispielhaft wird dies in der Frage der transnationalen Migration, vor allem aber der politischen Flüchtlinge deutlich. Der Verfasser fragt nach systemspezifischen Umgangsweisen mit diesem Problem in den beiden deutschen Staaten zur Zeit des Kalten Krieges und im Lichte der Katastrophe des Nationalsozialismus. (ICEÜbers)

'There is a basic antagonism between the exclusive norms of the European nation-state and the much broader norms of the universal human rights, an antagonism which is as old as the modern European societies themselves. This conflict can be exemplified by the issue of the transnational migration in general, more so by the issue of political refugees in particular. The topic of this article is the quest for system-specific ways of dealing with the problem which both German states underwent in the light of the catastrophe of the National Socialist rule and under the specific conditions of the cold war.'
