The author analyses the development of of the CDU as a federal party and states its ideological and programattic objectives. The inauspicious experience of the Weimar republic as well as the disastrous aftermath of the reign of national socialism have played the pivotal role in the shaping of the CDU. There have been attempts to fill in the ethical vacuum following the collapse of national socialism by Christian humanism . Then the author focuses on the Ahlen program (1947) and the Hamburg (1953) and Berlin (1968) party conventions. Particularly highlighted is the period between 1969 and 1982, the era of program modernization. In the end, the author looks into current party standings in Germany today.
