To this day, it is still being regarded as a symbol of the Order of the Cold War: bipolarity and division. Manoeuvring within the macrocosm of landmines, Cold War’s political sphere, and working in-and-out this division; the cabinets of the German Democratic Republic (East Germany) and the Federal Republic of Germany (West Germany) will to try to navigate through the issues as well as crises that will inevitably arise.

In the dawn of a breakthrough in the World Order; under the heavy burden of confrontations between major powers, two cabinets are going to tackle the issues such as emigration, refugees, isolation and alienation. Furthermore, delegates will debate upon various betrayals combined with oppositions and political pressures for the standing of the wall. Finally, against all the contradictions and barriers; there will be a contrast: competition and cooperation. Cabinets are going to debate and communicate around an idea of German Reunification, trying to build a better future for their citizens.
