Moral Policy in Germany

This study outlines the development of German moral policies since the 1960s until today and analyses their regulative pattern. Specifically,  life policy (embryonal stem cell research, abortion, and euthanasia), sexual policy (homosexuality, same-sex unions, pornography, and prostitution), addiction policy (drug consumption and gambling) and gun legislation are being scrutinise.
