Research in the history of Communist dictatorships, especially the SED (Socialist Unity Party) dictatorship
The history of Communism has been one of the Institute's research areas since the founding of the HAIT. In keeping with the Institute’s charter, its focus lies on the history of the SED dictatorship. The research does not attend exclusively to the historical development of the GDR, however, but also inquires as to its general significance, both from the German-German perspective and in the context of other state-socialist countries. In addition to the exploration of the apparatus of domination, most recently cultural, media-related and social scientific research projects have been pursued.
