PACHECO MENDEZ, Guadalupe. The Disappearance of the German Democratic Republic. International Context and Internal Crisis, 1989-1990. Foro int [online]. 2015, vol.55, n.4, pp.965-1017. ISSN 0185-013X.

The reforms promoted by Mikhail Gorbachev in the Soviet Union destabilized the communist regime of the GDR, opening up a process that combined internal factors with international negotiations on the democratization of the GDR and the unification of the two Germanies. A method of inserting unified Germany into the international system was required that would boost European stability following the shift in the balance of power arising from the crisis in the Soviet empire, and the presence of a strong Germany at the heart of the continent. Access for the GDR to the institutional framework of the German Federal Republic resolved the international problem, but curtailed the democratization process begun in the GDR.

Palabras llave : GDR; semi-sovereign state; sphere of influence; irredentism; regime change; German unification.
