This paper discusses Willy Brandt's Ostpolitiks. The paper describes how Brandt developed the policy of Ostpolitik (reconciliation between eastern and western Europe), which replaced the Hallstein Doctrine of the government led by Konrad Adenauer. The paper further discusses how Brandt became Chancellor of West Germany, continuing with his policy of Ostpolitik and negotiated an agreement with the Soviet Union accepting the frontiers of Berlin.

From the Paper:

"Postwar problems plagued a divided Germany and Cold War containment policies did little to resurrect the interests of West Germany. At that time, the Chancellor of West Germany, Willy Brandt, was convinced that policy changes were desperately needed in order to deal with the East. Brandt was motivated by the potential for increased economic trade and opportunity in East Germany and market expansion."
