Abstract
The article analyses the German Confederation's reform project drafted by the Saxon foreign minister Friedrich Ferdinand von Beust in 1861. Beust's project, due to his conservative-confederative views on the reform, was supposed to become an alternative to the Prussian and the Austrian solutions of the German Question, especially concerning middle- and small-size German states' rights and their status. To put the Confederation into a more effective shape met the German nation' needs how they were understood by politicians of the “Third Germany” and by Beust himself. The article examines basic points of this project and circumstances around its development and discussion between German cabinets. It also attempts to explore the inner and outer reasons of Beust's failure in promoting his project.
