Taking a constructivist approach to foreign policy analysis and using German policy vis-à-vis Poland and Czechoslovakia/the Czech Republic as an example, we examine Ostpolitik since the 1960s as a case of a norm-driven foreign policy. We argue that the content of Ostpolitik, including changes over time, can be explained by reference to a prevailing norm consensus in Germany about the country’s foreign policy toward Central and Eastern Europe, which began to develop in the 1960s. Bilateral relations proceeded smoothly, but the topic of the post-war expulsions occasionally caused fierce disputes, especially between Czechs and Bavarians (Burcher, 1996; Tampke, 2003; Cordell and Wolff, 2005). The post-war expellee community, the so-called Sudeten Germans, are a powerful political force in Bavaria.
