Willy Brandt Small Research Grant 2022

The Foundation

The Bundeskanzler-Willy-Brandt-Stiftung awards this year’s Willy Brandt Small Research Grant to Dr. Martina Garategaray. The historian teaches at the National University of Quilmes in Buenos Aires and focusses in her research on how Latin American intellectuals discussed and perceived social democratic ideas in in the 1980s.

In her current research project „Revolution, Socialism and Democracy: The Latin American Willy Brandt (1976-1992)”, Martina Garategary analyses intellectual networks in Latin America that cooperated with the German Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung. The project also sheds light on the cross-continental exchange in the political left from a Latin American perspective. With a Willy Brandt Small Research Grant of 5,000 Euro, the foundation funds a sabbatical allowing Martina Garategaray to finish a manuscript for an academic publication.

“Martina Garategary is breaking new scientific ground with her research project. We are very pleased to be able to support such an innovative project with a clear reference to Willy Brandt. We are looking forward to the result of her project and congratulate Ms. Garategary,” says Wolfram Hoppenstedt, director of the Bundeskanzler-Willy-Brandt-Stiftung.

The Willy Brandt Small Research Grant is a short-term grant supporting ongoing research projects in the field of history and political science. The Grant funds projects dealing with the work or legacy of Willy Brandt or with a chapter of contemporary history that is connected to Brandt’s work and political life.
