In memoriam Rainer Dumont du Voitel (* 3. November 1943; † 24. November 2016)


Vor einem Jahr, am 24. November 2016, verstarb mein EUROjournal-Kollege Rainer Dumont du Voitel. Die Todesnachricht traf mich überraschend. Noch wenige Wochen zuvor hatte ich gemeinsam mit ihm an einer Redaktionskonferenz der FEK in Františkovy Lázně teilgenommen und ihn dort als - wie ich ihn stets kannte - streitbaren und zugleich vermittelnden, auf die Herausarbeitung solider programmatischer Positionen bei der Gestaltung der (geplanten) Publikationstätigkeit für das Jahr 2017 orientierten Kollegen erlebt.

Als einer, dem (als einem der jüngsten Mitglieder des Editorial Council) das Glück zuteil wurde, mit Rainer - wie auch noch mit seinem Vater Rudolf (29. April 1916; † 2. August 2011) - in einem Zeitraum von rund einem Jahrzehnt gemeinsam für die FEK zu publizieren und die redaktionelle Arbeit mitzugestalten, lernte ich zwei Europäer nicht im Sinne "europäischer" Hurrapatrioten oder unkritischer Verherrlicher bestehender "europäischer" Institutionen und politischer Praktiken im Namen "Europas", sondern im Sinne unermüdlicher Verfechter des demokratisch-republikanischen Erbes eines Europa der Freiheit, der Gleichheit und der Brüderlichkeit kennen.

Rainer trat - auch und gerade in den letzten Jahren seines Wirkens für das EUROjournal - für die konsequente Geltendmachung demokratischer Normen ein, die seiner Auffassung nach auch dann nicht angetastet werden dürften, wenn dies (vermeintlich oder wirklich) in einem gemeinsamen "europäischen" Interesse liegen würde. Er ging also nicht davon aus, dass es einen "Kern" "besserer Europäer" gebe oder geben könne, die befugt wären, unter Außerachtlassung gemeinsam ausgehandelter Verfahrensweisen Anderen ihren Willen aufzuzwingen. In diesem Zusammenhang ließ Rainer niemals einen Zweifel daran, wie sehr ihm das Messen mit zweierlei Maß z. B. bei der Bewertung von Verstößen gegen demokratische Standards in östlichen EU-Mitgliedstaaten wie Polen oder Ungarn einerseits und bestimmten Praktiken im westeuropäischen "Kern" der EU andererseits zuwider war. 

Aber nicht nur hinsichtlich der Beziehungen zwischen den EU-Mitgliedstaaten trat Rainer für gegenseitigen Respekt auf der Grundlage der Anerkennung der souveränen Gleichheit der Nationen ein. Er sprach sich auch in sehr dezidierter Weise für freundschaftliche Beziehungen zu Nationen wie Serbien und Russland aus. Die Dämonisierung der Russischen Föderation - und die auf ihr beruhende Politik der Konfrontation und der "Sanktionen" - lehnte er prinzipiell als für das Projekt eines Europa der republikanischen Freiheit gefährlich ab. Einer seiner letzten Vorschläge, die er redaktionell einbrachte, war es, die Frage zu thematisieren, ob die NATO noch zeitgemäß sei.

Meine Freundschaft mit Rainer betrachte ich weiterhin als Verpflichtung, den Kampf für die republikanische, die "blauweißrote" Demokratie nicht nur in Europa, sondern auch über Europa hinaus niemals ad acta zu legen.
