Vorspann

Der Deutsche Bauernverband gilt als erzkonservativ, stur interessenorientiert und europaskeptisch – als altmodische Lobby mit Stallgeruch. Die Wirklichkeit sieht anders aus, wie der in Florenz lehrende Historiker Kiran Klaus Patel in einem zupackenden Essay zu zeigen vermag. Der DBV entpuppte sich – trotz mancher derber Anleihen beim rechten Lager – rasch als Stütze der Bonner Demokratie, und er verstand es früher und besser als andere Interessenverbände, die Chancen zu nutzen, die Brüssel und der gemeinsame Agrarmarkt boten.

Abstract

The Deutsche Bauernverband (German Farmers Association, DBV) was one of the most important special interest groups during the first decades of the Federal Republic. But how did it fulfil this function? The three main theses presented in this article are: Firstly that the DBV proved to be surprisingly successful at promoting its interest until the early 1960s and even beyond. However, this success did more harm than good to the majority of its clientèle. Secondly that the DBV played a decisive role in the stabilisation of the political order of the Federal Republic - even though and because parts of the Farmers Association operated with right-wing ideological concepts. And thirdly that, even though the Association at first tried to counteract European integration, of all things it was the EEC that later helped it preserve its influence.

Keywords: Deutscher Bauernverband; Europäischer Agrarmarkt; Agrarlobbyismus
