Reich, Hannah: Frieden stiften durch Theater

Konfessionalismus und sein Transformationspotential; interaktives Theater im Libanon. – Bielefeld: Transcript-Verl., 2013. – 329 S. (Kultur und soziale Praxis). – Bonn, Univ., Diss., 2010

Abstract: Maroniten, Christen, Schiiten und Sunniten – die konfessionsgebundene Verfassung des Libanon gewährt dem Mittelmeeranrainer nur bedingte politische Stabilität. Regelmäßig kam es in der jüngsten Vergangenheit zu innen- wie außenpolitischen Konflikten, zuletzt schwappte der innenpolitische Konflikt aus dem Nachbarland Syrien herüber. Kann es gelingen, durch interaktive Theaterprojekte einen nachhaltigen Beitrag zur Friedenssicherung in der Region zu leisten? Hannah Reich geht in "Frieden stiften durch Theater" dieser Frage nach. Sie begleitete die Forumtheatertruppe "Ala Boued Amtar", die mit Theaterprojekten versucht, soziale Anknüpfungspunkte zu schaffen. Reich stellt die aus der Praxis gewonnenen Erkenntnisse auf ein breites theoretisches Fundament. Unter Berufung auf eine Vielzahl geistes- und sozialwissenschaftlicher Ansätze, darunter  Edward Saids Orientalismus-Konzept, Judith Butlers Performance-Theorie, Augusto Boals Hypothesen zum gesellschaftsverändernden Theater und Kurt Lewins Theorie des sozialen Felds erarbeitet Reich eine Methodik für friedenstiftende Theaterprojekte. Das Thema Konfessionalismus (arabisch: Ta’ifiyah) stellt, wie Reich in der Projektarbeit feststellte, für die libanesische Bevölkerung ein omnipräsentes Dilemma dar. In ihren Analysen legt die Autorin daher einen Schwerpunkt auf den Umgang mit der Konfessionalismus-Debatte. Die kreative Theaterarbeit ermöglicht einen Zugang zu den tiefschürfenden Konflikten in der libanesischen Gesellschaft, der durch politische Dialoge nur bedingt greifbar wird. (ifa)

Abstract: Die Prävention von Krisen und gewalthaltigen Konflikten sowie der Aufbau stabiler Friedensstrukturen sind Ziele deutscher Außenpolitik, die sich konzeptionell im Aktionsplan der Bundesregierung "Zivile Krisenprävention, Konfliktlösung und Friedenskonsolidierung" von 2004 niedergeschlagen haben. Wer Krisen vorbeugen, die Ursachen gewalthaltiger Konflikte beseitigen und die Voraussetzungen für einen dauerhaften friedlichen Konfliktaustrag schaffen will, muss wissen, ob Eingriffe von außen diesem Ziel förderlich sind. Was funktioniert unter welchen Bedingungen, was nicht? Wie lässt sich das eigene Handeln verbessern, wie der Ressourceneinsatz optimieren? Das sind die Fragen, die das Interesse an Evaluation speisen, wie es seit einiger Zeit vor allem im Deutschen Bundestag geäußert wird. Vor diesem Hintergrund liefert die Studie eine Orientierungsbasis dafür, wie Möglichkeiten und Grenzen von Außenpolitikevaluation gerade im Aktionsfeld "Zivile Krisenprävention, Konfliktlösung und Friedensaufbau" bewertet werden können. Dabei baut sie auf dem Diskussionsstand in der Evaluationsforschung und den bisherigen Erträgen einschlägiger Evaluationen auf. Ausgelotet wird, was von herkömmlicher Evaluation bei nüchterner Betrachtung grundsätzlich erwartet werden kann und welche Alternativen zur Verfügung stehen. (SWP-Studie)
